Preparatory School Teacher of Mathematics
Commencing August 2020
Marlborough College Malaysia opened in 2012 and is a British day and boarding school for pupils aged 3-18 years. We live and work in a safe and spacious 90-acre campus in southern Malaysia, reminiscent of the generous grounds and playing fields of Marlborough College in the UK. Guided by our principles of compassion, companionship and conversation, Marlborough College Malaysia gives its boys and girls the space, inspiration and courage to explore their own potential, the wonders of our world and their responsibilities to it and to each other.
The College is arranged in a Prep School (3-13) and a Senior School (14-18) and it currently has 960 pupils, around 530 of whom are in the Prep and 140 of whom are in the Sixth Form. Pupils from the age of nine may choose to board and approximately a third of those who are eligible do so, with almost half of the Senior School and most of the Sixth Form boarding.
While very British in ethos and with a Common Room largely drawn from some of the UK’s leading schools, the College is also truly international, celebrating diversity and a global outlook with children representing over 45 nationalities. Around half of our pupils are from expatriate families.
The Master is seeking a well-qualified and enthusiastic Teacher of Mathematics to join our highly motivated and dynamic teaching team at the Prep School.
The Teacher of Mathematics will join an exceptional group of Prep teachers whose commitment and care for our pupils from 3 to 13 years old to make this the best possible start to their formal education. The successful applicant would teach Maths from Years Four to Eight.
The postholder will be expected to play a full part in the boarding life of the College and this will include a weekly boarding duty and some weekend duties. The weekly timetable may include Games and a contribution to the rich co-curricular life of MCM is essential to our vibrant school. The candidate will be expected to accompany groups of pupils on school trips, one of which each year, is a residential visit. Our ethos is underpinned by maintaining good communication and building strong relationships within and across the College and our families. A position of pastoral responsibility may be available for suitable candidates.
