Teacher of Games and PE
Commencing August 2021
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 looking for a highly motivated teacher of Games and PE to join a skilled and enthusiastic departmental team within a prestigious school setting. The role will involve devising and leading Games and PE lessons, training teams, assisting with fixtures and large tournaments.
While the ideal candidate, like all Marlborough staff, will have wide interests in sport and academia and be eager to learn and develop new skills, we particularly welcome applications from those with strengths and/or qualifications in Hockey, Rugby or Strength and Conditioning.
In addition to these, the College provides a rich range of sporting options for pupils which include Football, Netball, Basketball, Cricket, Athletics, Swimming, Badminton, Climbing, Golf, and much more.
The grounds are extensive and the sports resources are impressive. They include numerous grass playing surfaces, an athletics track, a cricket oval, full-sized and learner swimming pools, two air-conditioned sports halls, floodlit tennis and netball courts, a floodlit all-weather hockey pitch, a climbing room, squash courts and a state of the art recently refurbished fitness suite.
