Spotlight On: Learning Outside the Classroom

Marlborough College Malaysia understands the importance of holistic learning in every aspect of education. From biological exploration on our lake, to Educational Visits around the world learning how to ski, kayak or experience different environments, MCM truly values a wealth of experiences to enhance our pupils’ education. 


Although we provide many external opportunities to develop skills on activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, ski trips and sporting ventures throughout Asia, we also focus on expanding our pupils’ ability to learn in different ways and explore their passions whilst at school. Friday activity sessions are run in order to broaden our pupils’ minds, allow them to explore new hobbies and help them to gain skills outside of the classroom. 


The wealth of activities run over these sessions range from eco-friendly, technically based Precious Plastics, to learning essential life skills in the Cooking Club or Ivy House leadership development programme. All of our activities see passion combined with skill and discovery to create curious and accomplished pupils. Exploring passions and skills outside of the classroom allows us to cater to every individual interest and, as activities change termly, creates a diverse range of interests that pupils can experience over the school year. 


This developmental attitude towards learning begins with our very youngest learners in Forest School, a morning every week when our Pre Prep pupils spend time amongst nature, learning about different animals, habitats and environments. Exploration, discovery and curiosity are values that we aim to instil in every one of our pupils, from their first day at MCM, igniting a lifelong passion for adventure, curiosity and learning.
