Malvern College

For over 150 years Malvern has been revered as a school that defines a classic British education. A rich heritage of academic excellence is woven into the fabric of our architecture, where ideas can reach new heights, to be as expansive and inspiring as the views.

Take a walk through the grounds and you can feel the vibrations of a noble past, following the footsteps of CS Lewis, Francis William Aston, Edward B Titchener, James Meade, and Professor Chris Whitty, as well as famous personalities including the actor Denholm Elliot and broadcaster Jeremy Paxman.

But above all, Malvern is a home. A safe place where potential is discovered, where ambitions are realised and promises kept. Where pupils learn to become the best they can be, supported, nurtured and encouraged to explore and transform their future. As so many have done before them.



A Welcome by the Headmaster

“Malvern College Summer School is pleased to open its doors to international pupils aged 8-16 for the summer holidays 2021. Our focus is to improve English language skills and allow pupils a unique opportunity of experiencing a taste of a classic British education, by one of the UK’s leading independent schools. Our courses are managed, hosted and run by the College, meaning we are able to deliver the same high standard of education and facilities as what our own pupils receive.

The courses offered by Malvern College Summer School are all based on the same foundations we implement for our school activities – a strong academic focus, teamed with an enrichment programme that stimulates intellectual curiosity. Our programmes are developed to encompass not just classroom learning and workshops, but with regular activities to encourage the implementation of new-found skills in real-life scenarios.

We look forward very much to welcoming our 2021 pupils to Malvern College this summer.”
