Our Mission


Malvern College strives to be the leading independent co-educational boarding and day school of its scale and type in the United Kingdom, and seeks to develop happy, balanced individuals who will achieve personal fulfilment at university, at work and in society at large.

The focus of our activity is academic work. The broad 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 pupils 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.

We believe it is important for our pupils to have a firm commitment to deep-rooted values, and to be flexible, pragmatic and open to new ideas. We seek to be inclusive, supporting all Christians, respecting members of other faiths and promoting responsible and active citizenship. We aim to build self-discipline, self-confidence, and to develop communication and leadership skills in our pupils who emerge as lively, articulate young adults ready to contribute widely to the global community.
