Academic Excellence

Our highly qualified academic staff encourage a scholarly approach in our pupils. We look to nurture in them the habits and skills of independent learning which will equip them not only for success at school but also at university and in their future careers.

A Malvern Education


We believe that a Malvern education develops individuals who are confident, equipped to engage with a range of people from all walks of life beyond school, and inspired to make a difference as individuals to society at large.

The broad academic curriculum, complemented by an extensive sporting, musical, artistic and dramatic co-curriculum and under-pinned by a strong emphasis on pastoral care, encourages individuals to maximise their potential. Stimulated and challenged by the Malvern experience, our students more frequently exceed expectations than match them. The emphasis on individual achievement has its counterpoint in our encouragement of teamwork, co-operation and service to others.

Our experienced teachers adopt a personalised approach to inspire and empower each of our pupils. We encourage them to go beyond expectations, expand their potential, think critically and act collaboratively.


(Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

Malvern College (UK) pioneered Nuffield Science, an approach that promotes the study of science through experimentation and discovery.

Our approach across the learning and teaching of STEM is focused around practical work, inspiring a spirit of inquiry, critical thinking and problem solving. This emphasises the relevance of work to environmental, social, technical and economic issues and to children's lives.

Core Lessons

Core curriculum lessons are all taught by highly experienced teachers, who inspire pupils to enjoy their studies and encourage participation. Classroom based lessons include English, Sciences (Biology, Physics and Chemistry), History, Geography, Languages, Computing, Business Studies, Economics and Psychology.


Adopting a creative outlook is of particular importance in developing a balanced approach. Arts-based lessons will likely include Art and Design, Drama and Music workshops.
