What the Good Schools Guide says...

This is a school for the international set, and those who come from the local area, or even ‘over the hill’ - as the other side of the Malverns is described - undoubtedly benefit by having their horizons expanded beyond the comfortable values of the English shires. There are huge opportunities for pupils to learn from different cultures here and the college does well to work on its links with the local community, so it is not just the moneyed international culture that pupils assimilate, delightfully appealing though that is.

What the school says...

Malvern College aims to develop well-rounded, balanced individuals who will achieve personal fulfilment at university, at work and in society at large.

The focus of the school is academic work. The broad curriculum and co-curriculum is under-pinned by a strong emphasis on pastoral care to encourage and enable individuals to maximise their potential. Malvern offers a choice between the International Baccalaureate and A levels in the Sixth Form and produces impressive results.

We have recently made significant investments in state-of-the-art sports facilities and have also opened two new superbly equipped boarding houses. The boarding houses have extensive en-suite facilities and the new Sports Complex includes a 25m swimming pool, an eight-court sports hall, shooting range, squash courts, dance studio, multi-purpose fitness suite and an entertainment suite. We also have two newly refurbished tournament-quality Rackets courts. In addition, we offer a wide range of co-curricular activities from canoeing and mountain biking to Tae kwon do and scuba-diving.

Stimulated and challenged by the "Malvern experience", pupils more frequently exceed expectations than match them. The focus on individual achievement is counterbalanced by an encouragement of teamwork and a spirit of co-operation and service to others.

Special Education Needs

Malvern College has a Learning Support Department with seven part time, qualified, and experienced members of staff. We offer one to one support with literacy, numeracy and study skills to pupils with a predominantly mild specific learning difficulty. The Department screens pupils for specific difficulties on entry and offers to design an individual programme to meet an individual's needs through one to one tuition for an additional charge. A period of diagnostic teaching follows and may result in a referral to a visiting educational psychologist for a full assessment. A pupil may receive a regular lesson once a week, attend a short block of lessons or, in the Sixth Form, attend as and when required. The Department writes an annual Individual Educational Plan for each pupil that is made available to all teaching staff and is reviewed with parents at Parents Days. The Department is continually seeking to develop links with the teaching staff and offers internal training/advice. Where appropriate, arrangements are made for special access arrangements in public exams, such as additional time, rest breaks and word processing. The facilities are excellent and a warm, positive attitude is fostered. We offer a 'drop in facility' for pupils for private study with access to the school networked computer system, a printer and additional resources to help a pupil fully access the curriculum in their preferred learning style. We currently have three computers and are able to access a pupil's work and offer help with drafting and presentation.
