A Typical Weekend

The word ‘flourish’ is taken from the Positive Education framework that is embedded into all that we do at Marlborough College Malaysia. We want our boarding community to flourish, to reach their potential, in all of their endeavours. Of course, this applies to academic work. But we also recognise that experiences outside of the classroom play a significant role in helping our boarders to develop into the well rounded young men and women that we all want them to be when they leave us.
