Malborough College Malaysia continues the pioneering spirt of its mother school, Malborough College in Wiltshire, UK by being a values-led, successful and happy community with:
The school is a genuine extension, and not a franchise of Marlborough College in the UK, and therefore shares personnel, values and philosophy with the UK College and draws upon the very best traditions of one of the finest British boarding schools, while adding an exciting international dimension.
Set eight miles from Singapore on the tip of the Iskandar peninsula in Johor, Malaysia, the College comprises Prep School (ages 3-13) and Senior School (ages 14-18), with 900 pupils in total. Students from age 9 may board.
Malborough College Malaysia values and instils breadth of experience, intellectual rigour, creative joy and sporting excellence in its students. Many of the school’s pupils take the opportunity to develop independence and inter-reliance within the security and care of the outstanding boarding community.
The school’s motto is Deus Dat Incrementum or “God gives the increase” – a reminder that its students achieve with pride, but humility. Marlborough College Malaysia teaches its young charges that theirs is a duty to continue to make the world a better place; the school aims to give students the skills to lead that mission, and also offers the lifelong support and friendship of its worldwide Old Marlburian network.
“Our experience at Malborough College Malaysia (MCM) has been absolutely first-class. The quality of teaching is excellent. As our two children are two years apart and both attended international schools previously, we’ve been able to compare how the same curriculum is taught for specific year groups at MCM and at other international schools. Without a doubt, the quality and depth of teaching at MCM is superior on many levels. Drama, Art, Music, Design Technology, and all manner of activities are celebrated, not as “extracurricular” but as part of the curriculum.” – Kevin and Sue Chen, parents to two sons in Years 6 and 8
