Myhusbandand I planon returning to the UK for our children’s university education so we were keen for them to study under a British educational system. When Marlborough College opened its doors in 2013, we were curious to explore it.We took the plunge and sent Martha to board in Year 9 while we were living in Kuala Lumpur. She bravely tested the waters and luckily for her, and for us, she loved it! In 2015, we moved to JB, and since then our three children have been day students. Martha benefited from the boarding experience; her self-confidence and independence grew in leaps and bounds within just one short year. For us, the key winning element of the school is the teaching staff and the inclusive environment. The students all know each other, and the teaching and support staff make an effort to know your child. I can recount numerous times when teachers have gone above and beyond to support our children from both an academic and pastoral aspect. Sports is also an important part of school life for day students, and there is a strong emphasis on representing your house internally as well as at college level in competitions. There are also fantastic opportunities in drama, public speaking and other creative pursuits. Our children are kept busy with extracurricular activities. Marlborough offers rigorous academic education within a caring environment that offers structure and opportunity. The school is not a franchise but a sister school with strong links to the one in the UK.
