Boarding at Malvern College
Malvern College is proud of its long-standing heritage as a traditional boarding and day school offering responsive boarding. The day and boarding pupils are fully integrated into the boarding houses, ensuring an inclusive and supportive community.
Each pupil has a Housem – their Housemistress or Housemaster who oversees the individual’s progress through the College and who will help prepare the pupil for life beyond school. The Deputy Housem also works closely with pupils. In the House, there are also Assistants and Tutors who are always willing to answer questions or give advice. In addition to the House team, there are academic tutors, class teachers and staff in academic departments who are all available to help, many of whom run clinics to provide extra academic support.
