Malvern College Hong Kong
About Malvern College Hong Kong
Malvern College Hong Kong (MCHK) opened its doors to its first pupils in August 2018. This co-educational day school caters largely for international pupils, reflecting the truly multi-cultural nature of this vibrant city. Malvern College Hong Kong currently has 650 pupils in Prep 1 - Remove (Years 1-10) and will grow year on year to reach a capacity of nearly 1000 pupils in Years 1-13.
MCHK is located near the Science Park in the New Territories, with easy access by both road and rail from all areas around Hong Kong. With the added attraction of proximity to the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well as the Hong Kong Institute of Education, the area provides an excellent cultural and academic environment for teaching and learning.
MCHK is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes and pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. The curricular programmes in Malvern College Hong Kong draw on the educational heritage and practices of Malvern College, UK, whilst being adapted to fit the context of Malvern College Hong Kong. Daily Chinese is taken by all pupils.
MCHK works closely with Malvern College in the UK where the Malvern College International team is based. Sharing the ethos of our mother school, we create a nurturing learning environment and place equal emphasis on stretching pupils’ potential and building character, with support from the strong pastoral system structured around the vertical House system. In short, the educational experience for pupils at Malvern College Hong Kong extends far beyond the structured curricular timetable. A full range of daily co-curricular activities including sports and the Arts and our programme of trips and expeditions is rapidly developing as the school grows.
The purpose-built campus offers a superb environment for learning and teaching. Spread over 7 floors, well-equipped classrooms and science laboratories are complemented by an indoor sports hall and 6-lane 25m swimming pool, an auditorium, a dance and drama studio, music rooms, seminar rooms and exhibition spaces. A 3-storey high library in the central atrium forms a vibrant hub of learning and independent study at the heart of the school, and a Skypitch with Astroturf tops off the building.
*Only schools authorised by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted.
