About Malvern College
Malvern College is a leading independent school for girls and boys 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.
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 as 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 a SAT centre.
There are 650 pupils at Malvern College, and around 250 at The Downs Malvern, our affiliated prep school in Colwall. We are a traditional full boarding school with 77% of our pupils boarding and weekends are busy with a full programme of activities. We seek to prepare those who study at Malvern for a world that is fast-changing, and our House system engenders a sense of community and collective purpose. Pupils eat in their Houses creating the family feel for which Malvern is well-known.
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.
The excellent facilities include an Arts Centre, a Music School, a newly redeveloped Theatre, 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 has 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 Hong Kong.
