Before and After School (BAS) Clubs | Summer Term

MCM continues to offer a huge variety of Before and After School (BAS) Clubs across the whole College. Beaks run a lot of these clubs, for which there are no additional charges.

However, in order to be able to offer much more specialist coaching and equipment, we have arranged a number of clubs to be run by external professional coaches, (many of which are at the national level), and for these a nominal charge will be levied to cover the cost of the coaching and specialist equipment. Clubs will run from Friday 19th April to Sunday 16th June 2024. They will not run on 1st, 4th or 5th May. 

For Prep School pupils, parents will need to sign up for any clubs they choose. 

For Senior School pupils, the only clubs listed here are those that require parental approval such as paid clubs or where the pupils will require breakfast or supper. 

Kindly take note, once students are signed up for paid clubs, they are committed for the whole term. For clubs where there are limited places, there will be a waiting list. 

Should you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact the relevant club Lead Beak, as listed on the sign up form, or lastill@marlboroughcollege.my

On Friday, 19th April, both pupils and staff are encouraged to wear either a Malay outfit or something green and gold to add to the festive atmosphere of the celebration. It’s going to be a memorable occasion, and I don’t want you to miss out on all the fun!
