Established 157 years ago and in the top 10% of UK schools, Malvern College UK

-Malvern College UK
Founded in 1865, Malvern College UK is a co-educational, residential, and full-time school based in Malvern, Worcestershire, England, providing quality education for boys and girls aged 3 to 18.

Malvern College UK’s pursuit of rigorous academics and holistic education has led to the creation of a number of distinguished alumni, including author CS Lewis, Nobel laureates Francis Aston and James Mead, psychologist Edward Techner, actor Denholm Elliott, and current UK Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty, as well as other prominent alumni.

Always at the forefront of educational development and believing that both academic and extracurricular activities are important for human development, the school was one of the first in the UK to adopt the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. IB program graduates consistently score 36 or higher in all subjects, well above the world average (29.9) making it one of the best IB schools in the United Kingdom.*

*Malvern College UK is recognized as a Top 15 UK IB School and Top 50 Global IB School in the 2021 IB League Tables. (

-Malvern College Family Schools around the world
We have a worldwide network of Malvern College groups. As a principal, it is wonderful to be able to call our family schools and ask them for information about college admissions around the world and much more.

Our first overseas school was in Qingdao, China. In September 2012, Malvern College established its first overseas campus, Malvern College Qingdao, followed by Malvern College Chengdu in September 2015.

Since then, both schools have established a strong reputation, and graduates have been accepted by top universities such as Cambridge University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California, Los Angeles, and Imperial College London.

-Malvern Quality
Malvern’s philosophy is fostered by focusing on 11 carefully selected qualities, which are common characteristics of all Malvern schools.

We believe that these values will not only facilitate our students’ growth, but will also serve as the foundation for their future. We believe that Malvern Quality is an enduring human value that, over time, will prepare our students for life’s challenges and enable them to adapt and thrive in a rapidly evolving world. 

Our goal is to develop all of these qualities in our students in equal measure. We regularly focus on Malvern Quality as an integral part of our curriculum and extra-curricular activities. We also use in-house and outdoor activities as opportunities for students to learn about and apply these qualities in their daily lives.
