Where children are encouraged to use their initiative and to keep their minds and eyes wide open. It is very special... an unforgettable experience.

Our aim is to identify and nurture each child’s unique abilities and talents, whether in academic success, sporting prowess, artistic expression… or all three... encouraging exploration and building self-esteem. Our stunning and historic setting is 55 acres of the glorious Malvern Hills: a safe, secure and unspoilt environment where children learn, play, develop and grow. Many go on for the next stage of their educational journey to our associated senior school Malvern College, others to a host of top schools around the country.

Our strong academic programme, coupled with small classes and exceptional teachers, delivers results that stand alongside the best in the prep school world, while our superb sports and arts facilities ensure that this part of their education is equally rich and fulfilling. Around 50 of our 250 pupils board – either on a weekly - or full-boarding basis – in a safe, caring and happy “home-from-home”. Children can board at any time from Year 3 and share in the school’s tremendous camaraderie and supportive pastoral care, as well as enjoy an extensive extra-curricular, sports and hobbies programme that will engage, entertain and inspire them.
