The Marlborough College Malaysia Council was delighted to appoint Mr Alan Stevens as Master of Marlborough College Malaysia, in November 2016. Mr Stevens will be succeeding Mr Robert Pick, the Founding Master, who has led the College during its first five years and has been associated with Marlborough for 37 years.

Mr Stevens, together with his wife, Heather (above), will join Marlborough College Malaysia from Barnard Castle School, an HMC (Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference) co-educational boarding and day school in County Durham, England, where he has been Headmaster since 2010.

Mr Stevens, who is British, attended the Royal School Dungannon, where he was Head Boy, then graduated from Queen’s University, Belfast, with a First Class Degree in History. He was commissioned in the Reserve Forces in Northern Ireland and began his teaching career at Campbell College, Belfast, becoming Housemaster and Head of History.

After completing a period of research at Yale University, then receiving an MA in Educational Management and Leadership, he moved to Trent College, England, as Head of the Main School, before being appointed Headmaster of Barnard Castle.

On his appointment, Mr Stevens said, “I am immensely proud and excited to have been invited to lead Marlborough College Malaysia, and I am looking forward to working with new colleagues and the Council in forging the next chapter in our history.”
