Master’s Introduction

Since its foundation in 2012 as a natural extension of one of the world’s finest co-educational independent schools, Marlborough College Malaysia has offered its children a passport to a global future.

Established in 2012 as a natural extension of one of the world’s finest co-educational independent schools, Marlborough College Malaysia provides a contemporary, challenging and enriching education that prepares pupils for a global future. 

Our beautiful ninety-acre estate, reminiscent of the generous grounds and playing fields of Marlborough College in the UK, provides a safe, spacious and inspirational environment for pupils to explore their passions and develop their skills. Whilst academic rigour forms the bedrock of all that we do, we believe that education is not just about achieving academic success, but also about nurturing socially conscious individuals who are keen to make their mark on the world. Our pupils are bright and relish a challenge. It is the norm for our pupils to achieve excellent grades while making the most of the incredible opportunities that we offer. We have an impressive record of success in International GCSEs and then the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which opens doors to the world’s finest universities.

Guided by our principles of compassion, companionship and conversation, we want our pupils to be the best they can be, and we encourage them to embrace challenges with a sense of independence and determination. With our shared DNA and close links with Marlborough UK, we value and instil a breadth of experience, intellectual curiosity, creative joy and sporting excellence. Our co-curricular programme is, quite possibly, second to none in the region, offering a staggering range of opportunities in sports, arts, service, and leadership. 

Marlborough College Malaysia is a happy, flourishing, and vibrant community where friendships for life are made. Indeed, many of our pupils take the opportunity to develop independence and inter-reliance within the security and care of our outstanding boarding community, and all our pupils enjoy the life-long support, friendship and professional network of our world-wide Marlburian Club

Our commitment is to get to know all of our pupils as individuals and to inspire, support and motivate each one, nurturing their full potential and setting them on the path to a bright future. It is our priority to make each pupil’s experience an enormously exciting, enjoyable and enriching one.

I am thrilled and extremely honoured to be leading such a vibrant and successful school and invite you to visit us to experience something of the spirit of Marlborough for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

I look forward to welcoming you.
