Malvern College is a coeducational school which maintains the finest traditions but is renowned for its forward looking innovation. Founded in 1865, it is set in the heart of England where a safe, friendly environment is provided for pupils aged 13 to 18.
As a proper boarding school, there is a full programme of activities on Saturdays and Sundays, both academic and social, when at least 350 pupils are on campus for the entire weekend.
The facilities, quality of teaching and academic standards are what you would expect of a leading boarding school. Additionally, what makes Malvern College distinctive is the care given to the boys and girls through the Houses and the supportive tutor mentor system.

The positive recognition of gifts, whatever they are - in others and in ourselves - is central to Malvern College Preparatory School. The Preparatory School learning experience respects the child’s individuality, encourages boys and girls to be considerate and caring to others and ensures that they thrive in a safe, friendly school. Our children achieve high standards in their academic work and co-curricular activities.
From September 1st 2008, our current Prep School will merge with The Downs School in Colwall forming The Downs, Malvern College Preparatory School. The School will be situated in Colwall, the existing site of The Downs, set in a stunning location of 55 acres, just two miles from Malvern College.
Alastair Ramsey, the current Head of The Downs and future Head of The Downs, Malvern College Prep, says: ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to create a strong, vibrant co-educational prep school, building on the close ties the two schools have established over many years. Both Malvern College Prep and The Downs are schools that enjoy great success and I am confident that the merger will set new standards in preparatory education in this country.’
