Malvern College – Transform Their World

Wrapped in the warm embrace of the glorious Malvern Hills, our College is regarded as one of England’s great independent schools. With an admired and distinguished history, Malvern alumni have helped to shape the modern world of science, sport, literature, and the arts for generations.

Although we are a long way from 1865, when the College was founded, some things will never change. Our commitment to developing outstanding young people with the skills, resilience, and initiative to flourish in a rapidly changing global landscape remains – all these years later – at the very heart of our approach, and our beliefs.

Naturally, we offer a strong academic focus, with an enrichment programme that stimulates intellectual curiosity and an academic breadth beyond the confines of examination criteria. But it is our diverse super-curricular and co-curricular programmes that promote all-round personal development and a happy and healthy lifestyle, which broadens horizons and instils a lust for life. We want our pupils to embrace the world and all that it has to offer, with the experiences and confidence that will shape their future endeavours.

Lower School

Foundation Year (Year 9)

In the Foundation Year, our curriculum is focused on empowerment. Pupils are encouraged to become independent learners, improving the skills needed for successful academic development.

Remove & Hundred (Years 10 & 11)

Years 10 and 11 are transformative for our pupils. Towards the end of the Foundation Year pupils select their GCSE/IGCSE subjects ready for entering the Remove (Year 10). The Hundred (Year 11) culminates in the examinations – providing pupils with an opportunity to showcase the knowledge they have accrued.

Pre-Sixth Form (Year 11)

We recognise that the highest achievers require specialised support. Pupils who successfully demonstrate the ability to complete GCSE/IGCSE qualifications in one year are therefore offered places on our pre-Sixth Form course. The course provides extended opportunities to prepare for the exciting challenges Sixth Form life represents.

Sixth Form

The Sixth Form nurtures each individual pupil’s research and learning capabilities, equipping not only for success in their exams, but also for life beyond Malvern College.

Malvern is one of the leading International Baccalaureate schools in the world. We introduced the IB Diploma in 1992, and our exam results consistently place us in the top five International Baccalaureate schools in the UK.

We offer 26 subjects for both A levels and the IB, providing every pupil with a pathway to suit their individual requirements and wider aspirations.
