Malvern College is a leading co-educational full boarding and day school for pupils aged 13-18. Founded in 1865, Malvern is set in a beautiful 250-acre campus, which offers first-class facilities to its pupils. Malvern College has offered the International Baccalaureate as an alternative academic qualification to A levels since 1992, with equal numbers of pupils now taking A levels and the IB in the Sixth Form.
Malvern College has a total of 650 pupils, with 310 pupils in the Sixth Form.
Day pupil fees are from £7681 to £7921, per term.
Boarding pupil fees are from £11593 to £7921, per term.
The broad curriculum and co-curriculum is under-pinned by a strong emphasis on pastoral care to encourage and enable individuals to maximise their potential. We have recently made significant investments in state-of-the-art science facilities and have also opened two new superbly equipped boarding houses and a state-of-the-art sports complex. The boarding houses have extensive en-suite facilities and the sports complex includes a 25m swimming pool, an eight-court sports hall, shooting range, squash courts, dance studio, multi-purpose fitness suite and an entertainment suite. The Sports Complex has been designed to accommodate the needs of the school and those of Worcester County Cricket Club and Worcester Warriors, who use the facility for its winter training. We also have two tournament-quality Rackets courts. In addition, we offer a wide range of co-curricular activities from canoeing and mountain biking to climbing and scuba-diving.
Stimulated and challenged by the 'Malvern experience', pupils more frequently exceed expectations than match them. The focus on individual achievement is counterbalanced by an encouragement of teamwork and a spirit of co-operation and service to others.
Malvern College is a school for all-rounders and we are seeking pupils with energy, spirit and a sense of purpose who are prepared to engage with the wide range of activities and opportunities that the school offers. At the same time we expect pupils to maximise their individual academic potential, whether that be entry to Oxbridge or a more modest, but nonetheless admirable achievement.
We recruit approximately 200 new pupils each year. The majority emanate from the surrounding rural counties, but as a full boarding school (80% of pupils board) we also attract pupils from further afield and we have a significant number of MoD and British expatriate families. Existing family connections are strongly encouraged and a number of our pupils are second, third and even fourth generation Old Malvernians (OMs).
