Head of Senior School Welcome


david-glynn-senior-school-management-team-malaysia-smallWelcome to the Senior School at Marlborough College Malaysia.


A Marlborough education is distinctive. Pupils here embrace values which encourage scholarship, mutual respect and active participation. Passionate teaching and inspired learning are our currency in the Senior School and each child develops the knowledge and skills required for success at university and professionally, while also celebrating intellectual curiosity and a deepening understanding of society and our world.

Our curriculum throughout the school is informed by the outstanding IB Learner Profile which is not reserved only for the Sixth Form and which enriches the intellectual and personal development of all our children to be:

• Inquirers
• Knowledgeable
• Thinkers
• Communicators
• Principled
• Open-minded
• Caring
• Risk-takers
• Balanced
• Reflective

Our unique relationship with Marlborough in the UK brings further opportunities for Senior School pupils through a variety of exchanges, competitions and collaborations. For our Upper Sixth leavers, lifetime membership of the Marlburian Club provides professional mentoring and career advice as well as social opportunities.



Important themes of service and charity run through our school. We are determined that our pupils should be ambitious not only for themselves, but also for others in the wider communities in which they live. Our Outreach programme promotes the Marlborough tradition of giving back to society.

The College is also home to a community of over 200 boarding pupils who benefit from academic support in their Houses and enrich their school experience by access to all of the College’s resources, additional activities and excursions. More importantly, living in a close community promotes independence, tolerance, and responsibility, the perfect preparation for university and life.
Above all, a Marlborough education is characterised by experiences that challenge and enrich our boys and girls, developing confidence, emotional intelligence and integrity. The thrill of Senior School is watching our Shell (Year 9) pupils develop poise, confidence and leadership skills as they progress towards the Sixth Form where they enjoy a programme that is unparalleled as a preparation for university and beyond.

The Senior School accepts pupils from Shell (Year 9) to Upper Sixth (Year 13) for examination in IGCSE and then the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Our pupils’ results in public examinations are excellent, as are the university destinations of our Sixth Form leavers.
