Malvern College

About Malvern College


Malvern College pupils are bright and enthusiastic all-rounders and the College is noted for its warmth and friendliness. We are a co-educational boarding school for pupils aged 13-18 and 76% of our 650 pupils full board. This makes us extremely popular with expat and overseas families for whom a full programme of weekend activities is important. The pupils eat in their houses and this fosters a welcoming family atmosphere. We seek to maintain the most important traditions, but are innovative and forward looking. Pupils of all abilities flourish academically and our ‘value added’ makes us of one the leading independent schools in the country.

In the Sixth Form, pupils have the option to choose A Levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB), with 50% of pupils choosing each course of study. We benefit from very beautiful rural and safe surroundings on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills and yet we are only 1 hour South of Birmingham airport.
