Malvern College Tokyo open in September 2023.
Malvern College, an outstanding British Independent School with over 150 years of history, is delighted to announce Malvern College Tokyo as the 10th member of the Malvern College Family of Schools. Malvern College Tokyo will be the seventh overseas school in the Malvern family, expanding Malvern’s global network to a total of ten members in locations including the UK, Qingdao, Chengdu, Hong Kong, Egypt and Switzerland.
Malvern College Tokyo will open in September 2023 and aims to be a leading international school in Tokyo. Initially accommodating pupils from Years 1 to 9, this will extend upwards to Year 13 by 2026, ultimately providing 950 places for both primary and secondary pupils.
The school intends to offer the International Baccalaureate program in primary, secondary and higher education classrooms (subjected to appropriate authorization being made by the International Baccalaureate Organization).
Dr. Robin Lister, Regional Executive Adviser for Malvern College International (Asia Pacific) explains, “Malvern College Tokyo will be much more than a school offering a highly respected international curriculum. Our school will stand out from others, not least because of its strong ethos, and our emphasis on the Malvern Qualities, namely, resilience, integrity, self-awareness, risk-taking, open-mindedness, curiosity, kindness, ambition, collaboration, humility, and independence. These values enable our pupils to grow during their time with us and provide a solid bedrock for their futures, equipping them for life’s challenges, and enabling them to adapt and to succeed in a rapidly evolving world.
