Malvern College Chengdu
Malvern College’s second international campus, Malvern College Chengdu, opened in September 2015.
Located on a hillside above Chengdu, in China’s Sichuan Province, Malvern College Chengdu is an international secondary school for Chinese nationals backed by Malvern College UK and licensed by the Chinese authorities.
In September 2019 a second campus was opened in Xinjin County, to the south of Chengdu, initially catering for primary-age pupils.
The school currently has around 250 pupils across primary and secondary and will grow steadily towards an ultimate capacity of around 2000 once the new campus is fully operational. The school offers both day and boarding options.
Malvern College Chengdu provides a bespoke bilingual curriculum for pupils from Nursery to Year 6, encompassing both the compulsory Chinese National Curriculum as well as key elements of the English National Curriculum. Pupils then transition to the IGCSE and A-level programmes once they reach secondary school.
Subjects currently offered for external examinations include Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Business Studies, Economics, Accounts, and Chinese. English as a Second Language is taken at IGCSE and students receive thorough preparation for IELTS/TOEFL exams. All students have regular Physical Education sessions. Students in the Foundation years (Lower 4, Middle 4, and Upper 4) study a wider range of subjects including Humanities.
Students have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of co-curricular activities such as sport, music, drama, art, debating, and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, and are supported through Leadership and Study Skills programmes.
The school is managed by the Academic Headmaster, Mr. Gerrard Docherty, alongside the College’s Asia Pacific partner, Babylon Education.
