About Malvern College
Malvern College is a leading independent school for boys and girls aged 13 to 18. Our focus is on encouraging academic excellence, personal growth and all round achievement in our pupils and providing outstanding pastoral care through the impressive House system. It is a vibrant hub of activity where pupils participate in an enormous range of co-curricular activities that support and inform their individual academic programmes.
Situated on the slopes of the Malvern Hills and close to the centre of Great Malvern, the beautiful 250-acre main College campus commands striking views across the Severn Plain towards the Cotswolds.
There are 660 pupils at Malvern College, and around 220 at The Downs Malvern, our affiliated prep school in Colwall. Just under half of the pupils in the Senior School are girls and approximately one-fifth are day pupils. We offer traditional boarding with a weekend programme of activities.
The school is proud of its high academic standards and its pastoral care. There is a broad curriculum which is intended to give all pupils breadth and depth in a range of disciplines. We have offered the International Baccalaureate an alternative to A levels since 1992 and approximately 50% of our Sixth Form choose each course of study. Results are excellent and pupils consistently secure places at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge and an increasing number of pupils go to Ivy League or top universities in the US and Canada. Malvern College is an SAT centre.
The excellent facilities include an Arts Centre, a Music School, a Theatre (which will be undergoing significant development starting in 2017), two tournament quality Rackets Courts, a Library, extensive sports grounds, two all-weather pitches and a Technology Centre. A newly refurbished Science Centre was officially opened in 2015 which, alongside state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, also has a new lecture theatre. Our other facilities include a fantastic sports complex which includes a twenty-five metre pool, an eight-court sports hall, squash courts, gym, dance studio, climbing wall and rifle range. In addition, a hospitality suite allows the College to host a variety of functions throughout the year.
The Malvern brand is globally strong: we have sister schools in Qingdao, Chengdu, New Cairo and a new school opening in Hong Kong in 2018. For further information about Malvern College International and details about each overseas school please visit www.malverncollegeinternational.org.
