We have high expectations of pupils in their efforts, achievements and behaviour, and seek to develop confident, well-rounded individuals who can be successful in their own lives and to society at large. It is the quality of the people and human relationships between them that makes the Malvern Family. Our view of education is based on mutual respect, trust, pastoral care and a positive outlook.

The broad academic curriculum, complemented by an extensive sporting, musical, artistic and dramatic co-curriculum and under-pinned by a strong emphasis on pastoral care, encourages individuals to maximise their potential. Stimulated and challenged by the Malvern experience, our pupils more frequently exceed expectations than match them. The emphasis on individual achievement has its counterpoint in our encouragement of teamwork, co-operation and service to others.

We believe it is important for our pupils to have a firm commitment to deep-rooted values, and to be flexible, pragmatic and open to new ideas. We seek to be inclusive and fair, respecting members of all cultural backgrounds, and promoting responsible and active citizenship. We aim to develop communication and leadership skills in our pupils who emerge as lively, articulate young adults ready to contribute widely to the global community.

We believe in creating a pupil-oriented, interactive learning environment where pupils learn to question, to communicate their ideas effectively, to work independently, to problem-solve and to develop resilience by persisting with tasks they may find challenging.
