Malvern College Tokyo will follow the example of Malvern College UK and Malvern College Hong Kong by offering a globally accepted and well-established curriculum, one which will give pupils opportunities to continue their studies at a wide variety of universities around the world. We believe an internationally accepted programme will not only meet the needs of our culturally diverse pupil body but will also provide significant opportunity to recognise education as both global in content and outlook and also emphasise the interconnectedness of knowledge.

Primary Years Programme

Very young learners need to be stimulated, and to collaborate and interact with their peers and teachers and to make effective use of the curriculum. Our Early Years programme is a holistic learning experience that integrates socio-emotional, physical, and cognitive development. In the PYP classroom, learning takes place in a dynamic environment that promotes play, discovery, and exploration.

Primary Years Programme
(Year 1-6)

Our Primary Years Programme is an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum focusing on the development of the whole child. It addresses pupils’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing and encourages pupils to develop independence and accountability for their own learning. Pupils make connections between local and global issues in a real-world context and establish personal values as a foundation for international-mindedness.

Secondary Years Programme

Our Secondary Years Programme empowers our pupils to become independent learners. Young people need confidence, resilience and initiative to flourish in today’s modern world. The programme provides an excellent foundation for developing these characteristics and supports pupils in becoming critical thinkers, with strong intercultural understanding and outstanding communication skills.
