Malvern College

Co-educational boarding and day in Malvern, Worcestershire

Malvern College, as one of the great English independent schools, has a proud and lasting connection to the military. We’ve been welcoming children of service families as boarders since 1865, making their home with us in the protective embrace of the Malvern Hills.

At Malvern, our pupils do more than just remember and recite facts. By encouraging curiosity and diversity of thought, we ensure each pupil develops a well-rounded approach to learning. Our academic programme is broad and rightly challenging. Beyond GCSEs, International GCSEs, the International Baccalaureate and A Levels, we measure the value added to each pupil’s academic achievement through a process of independent baseline testing. Pupils are empowered to thrive academically with a rich balance of super-curriculum and co-curriculum motivation so they can truly excel, wherever their passions lie. Our unique house system creates a family environment and a focus on developing emotional intelligence alongside academic excellence, ensuring our young people are ready for the opportunities and challenges modern life brings.


Over 75% of our pupils are full boarders and the Houses are full of activity throughout the weekends.

Malvern College offers up to 20% discount on full boarding fees for members of the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.
