The International Baccalaureate at Malvern College

The IB Diploma has been a highly successful part of the academic programme at Malvern since 1992 and it is a programme of study that is completely in tune with our holistic approach to education at the College.

Over the last five years, our IB graduates have averaged 36.8 points, with 18% of our pupils being awarded 40 points or more. With these results our pupils are consistently able to access the very best universities in the UK and across the world.

We offer a wide range of subjects, including Higher and Standard Level Maths in both Analysis and Approaches and Applications and Interpretation. We also offer both English Language and Literature and English Literature at both Higher and Standard Level.

We have recently introduced Psychology and Computer Science to our IB offering as well as School Supported Self Taught Language A, where pupils are able to study the literature of their native language with support from a school supervisor.

In all subject areas pupils are encouraged to develop communication skills, and the ability to think critically and reflectively, with the Theory of Knowledge course fundamental in developing the skills needed to enable pupils to test the validity of arguments and the strength of evidence.

At Malvern College we actively promote a set of well-tested, enduring human values which we call the Malvern Qualities. We believe that these values will enable our pupils to grow whilst they are with us and over time, equip our pupils for life's challenges, enabling them to adapt and succeed beyond Malvern.

Our pupil led Super-curriculum allows them to individualise their studies through a number of societies and these create the opportunities for intellectual stretch, further academic breadth and collaborative research. Our extensive Co-curricular programmes provide a significant range of opportunities for each pupil to engage in a range of sports, creative activities and service opportunities contributing to their Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) component. Our holistic curriculum encourages and enables all pupils to develop the necessary skills, passions and ambitions, curiosity and personal qualities needed for building on their strengths, discovering new talents and becoming life-long learners.
