Mr Matthew Marwick

Senior Deputy Head: Admissions & Discipline

From January 2022, Mr Matthew Marwick will take on the role of Senior Deputy Head, with the portfolios of Admissions and Discipline.

Matthew has taught at Maritzburg College, his old school, since 2004. He is currently the head of Admissions and Discipline, the subject head of history, and the coach of the 9th XV. He was formerly the head of the boarding establishment (2014-2019), and was a youthful president of the MCOBA in 2005-2006. He is married to Kirsten (nee Harms), and is the father of two Mudrats. He is currently also the chairman of the Governing Body at Merchiston and the step-father of two strapping Old Collegians.

When asked about his recent promotion to Senior Deputy Headmaster, he replied that “it is a great honour to serve my Alma Mater in this elevated role, and I shall do my very best to match the heroic examples of such fine gentlemen as AS Langley, Skonk Nicholson, Keith Guise-Brown and Ingo Talke.”
