Malvern College is rooted in the best of tradition but is forward-looking and ambitious in its aspirations for the future. As one of the first schools to run the International Baccalaureate in the UK, the school celebrated 25 years of running the IB alongside A levels in 2017.

Academic results are excellent and, through an extensive co-curriculum, pupils can develop the necessary personal qualities required for life beyond school. Emphasis on nurturing the individual is balanced by an understanding of the responsibility each has to play in the lives of others.

Ideally placed in the inspirational setting of the Malvern Hills and near to the town of Great Malvern, we are close to major transport links and to Birmingham Airport.

At Malvern, we are proud of our innovative spirit, superb and developing facilities, and a teaching staff that enables pupils to flourish, all of which make this is the very best environment in which to learn.
