An Outstanding Boarding School Experience in Malaysia
“I live in a 50 bedroom house, on a 90-acre plot, with two swimming pools, my own football pitches, an athletics track, squash courts, basketball courts, a theatre, sports hall, gym, music block, tennis courts and a climbing wall. I even have my own library…and to top it all, I am with my best friends everyday…I’m a boarder at Marlborough College Malaysia!”
Pupils in Year 5 and above can join Marlborough College Malaysia as boarding pupils. The Houses form communities of between fifty and sixty pupils, under the leadership of a Housemaster or Housemistress (HM). HMs are in loco parentis and as such are directly responsible for the welfare and progress of those in their care. Also serving the Houses are Resident House Tutors (RHTs) and teams of visiting tutors. These, alongside the Dames (managers of domestic arrangements), the health centre and Senior Management Team, form the heart of the pastoral care structure within the school.
Living communally in Houses engenders a tremendous spirit and sense of comradeship. This can be borne out in a broad range of inter-House competitions: in quizzes, public speaking, debating, general knowledge, drama and singing. There can surely be no better way to develop meaningful and strong relationships than in an international boarding school environment.
“The College is commended on the outstanding facilities and level of cleanliness in the boarding houses.” – COBIS Report 2021
The Senior Boarding Houses are for pupils in Shell to Upper Sixth (age 13-18 years old).
