Space and FacilitiesWhy MCM?
Marlborough College in England is a beautiful school. Founded in 1843, the College is situated at the western end of the market town of Marlborough in the county of Wiltshire in the south of England and occupies 200 acres of historic downland. Around the town there rises the beauty of the Marlborough Downs; rolling green hills typical of England’s pleasant land. The charm of this countryside, combined with the warmth of College life, conjures for many the happiest of memories for pupils and staff.
It is essential that Marlborough College Malaysia reflects a similar space for young people to flourish. Our 90-acre site close to the Straits of Johor and just 15 minutes from the Singapore border, provides space for community life and access to areas of outstanding natural beauty through southern Malaysia and beyond. It is a site unrivalled for space and facilities by international schools in Singapore and Malaysia.
Sports facilities include full size grass pitches for rugby and football, a cricket ground, a full size hockey astro, five tennis courts, four squash courts, a double basketball court gymnasium, netball courts, 50m swimming pool, a 400 metre athletics track, a smaller junior pool, an indoor climbing centre, fitness suite and space for badminton and table tennis. A nearby lake and local nature reserves provide opportunities for local fieldwork and adventurous activities.
We are committed to Art, Music and Drama; we have twenty music practice rooms and performance spaces, a drama theatre with teaching facilities and a dedicated Art and Design Technology building.
The buildings of the first phase of development in Malaysia were not built as folly imitations of buildings at Marlborough College in England but specific influences have been drawn from the older site. Our boarding Houses have been modelled on those at Marlborough (New Court and Mill Mead), there is a central grass-covered Court and the Dining Hall is designed with an interior height to reflect Norwood Hall.
