The Abbey College, Malvern

We are a privately-run school in the town of Malvern in central England, offering various high-quality and flexible programmes. These are in both the Academic field at pre-university level (IGCSE, A Levels and Foundation Courses) and in the English Language field. All courses are offered on a co-educational, fully-residential basis and we are fully accredited and recognised by various regulating bodies.

Our students come to us from all around the world, attracted by the opportunity to interact, develop and learn from staff experienced in dealing with international students. We provide a fully-residential package, with fees covering the vast majority of what students need from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure, 24 hours per day. Our services are provided on-site in a secure, supervised environment.

In the Academic field the average class size is only 7, enabling our teachers to understand the needs of each individual student. This has been the basis for a record of strong academic achievement, with many of our students going on to some of the U.K.'s best-established universities. Full English Language support is built into courses where required.

Whether you are interested in us for the opportunity of gaining acceptance at a renowned U.K. university or for the chance to take a short-term English Language course, The Abbey College could provide what you are looking for.

About The Abbey

The Abbey College, Malvern

The Abbey College, Malvern

The site of The Abbey College was established as a seat of learning in 1874, lying on the lower slopes of the famous Malvern Hills in central England.

Our Location

The region contains some of England's loveliest countryside. The Abbey College itself is part of a government-recognised "area of outstanding natural beauty".


The town of Malvern, with a population of around 40,000, is renowned as a centre for high-quality private education, and is statistically one of the safest towns in the whole of the U.K.

Students with us focus on living and learning away from the dangers and distractions of many big cities.

Our central location does however provide the opportunity to arrange supervised excursions to various cities around us on a regular basis. Older students are free to use convenient local transport in their free time.
