A Welcome from the Headmaster

I am delighted that once again we are able to open our doors to international students joining Malvern College Summer School for the courses we will be running in summer 2024. Malvern College prides itself on helping the students in our care develop into well-rounded individuals through the transformational education we provide, and our Summer School shares these same values, with a focus on helping students improve their English language abilities, whilst growing in confidence and resilience.

Our courses are directly managed by experienced College staff, which means the students in our care benefit from the same facilities and high standards of education as those who study with us year-round. We provide an authentic taste of a classic but forward-looking British education, based on the foundations
and principles we have developed over the last 150 years – a strong academic focus, coupled with an enrichment programme that stimulates genuine intellectual curiosity. Our programmes have been developed to provide a stimulating classroom and workshop experience with additional activities designed
to embed newly-developed skills in real-life scenarios. It is our hope and expectation that all students attending our courses will enjoy a truly transformational experience, whilst having fun and making new friends and life-long memories.

We look forward very much to welcoming you and your children to Malvern College next summer.

Our Approach

Students will choose two modules per week out of the five on offer, to create their own timetable. This gives them the independence to personalise their Summer School based on their interests and they can change these each week that they are with us.

One of our modules is Learn English which are traditional English lessons; however if they don’t choose to take this module, there is also an emphasis on ‘normal life’ where students are learning how to use their language skills in social settings, becoming familiar with idioms and every day phrases.

All of our English teachers are native speakers and are experienced in teaching English. We also aim to have one session each week when English students come in and chat to pupils, engaging them in informal conversation and dialogue which is another important element of improving language skills.
