New Staff bios

We are excited to introduce the biographies of the new teaching staff who have joined Marlborough College Malaysia for this Academic Year.


Security Notice

It has been wonderful to welcome all our MCM families back over the past two weeks. The College is once again buzzing with life. In order to ensure the safety of our campus we would like to remind all parents of the following:

  • Go directly to the Event. Please do not enter the teaching areas or common areas of the College without authorisation. To assist you a College map is provided below.
  • Please wait or meet at the school reception points. If you have a meeting with College staff please go to the main reception points (Pre-Prep in Green, Prep Reception GF glass lobby, Senior School Administration building opposite Court), where our Reception team will be happy to assist you.

National Online Safety (NOS) App

“What Parents and Carers Need to Know about Sharing Photos Online”

One of the more heartwarming aspects of social media is being able to share special moments in our children’s lives with family and friends. This week’s guide runs through some safety considerations when sharing images.

With potential risks such as accidentally displaying identifying details and photos being seen and saved by strangers, perhaps we need to take a little more caution over what we post and where we post it. 

Please be aware that Marlborough College takes the topic of sharing personal information, such as images, very seriously. To learn more about our pastoral policies please visit our website.
