OUR ETHOS

Malvern College

ETHOS


We believe that education is about enrichment, not only of the individual but of the communities within which those individuals live and therefore of society in general. Malvern College Egypt aims to provide an education of the highest possible standard for each of its students in all key areas of development. The most important of these are the academic, cultural, moral and co-curricular. We have high expectations of our students in terms of their effort, achievements and behaviour and we aim to provide them with the means by which they can develop to the best of their abilities their knowledge, skills and personality. By so doing we seek to develop confident, well-rounded individuals who can be successful in their own lives and of service to others.

Academic Achievement


We want our students to gain the best results of which they are capable.
We seek to achieve this through:
• top quality teaching
• excellent facilities
• inculcating in each student a love of learning, of exploring ideas and of discovering the world about them
• active student participation in classes with an emphasis on understanding and critical thinking

Character Development


We want each student to develop a sense of self-worth, knowing the difference between right and wrong and doing the right thing when it comes to making choices. We want them to respect the differences in others and in turn be respected by those around them, by showing politeness, kindness and concern for others. These values should permeate every aspect of the school focusing especially on:
• mutual respect between teachers and students
• fair and consistent implementation of discipline

Cultural Achievement


We want to nurture each student’s creative talents through participation in:
• art
• drama
• music
• dance
• visits to galleries, museums, shows, talks etc.

Co-curricular Activity


We expect all students to develop their bodies as well as their minds and characters. This is to be done through:
• physical education
• games
• clubs
• outward bound activities


THE BOTTOM LINE

It is the quality of the people and the human relationships between them that make Malvern special. Whether it is the way in which a department works, a class works or teachers and tutors work with individual students, our view of education is based on mutual respect, trust, pastoral care and a positive outlook.

We aim to focus pupils’ attention on developing the following “Malvern Qualities”:

  • RESILIENCE

  • SELF-AWARENESS

  • OPEN-MINDEDNESS

  • KINDNESS

  • COLLABORATION

  • RISK-TAKING

  • CURIOSITY

  • AMBITION

  • INDEPENDENCE

  • INTEGRITY

  • TOLERANCE

  • HUMILITY

Clearly some of these are more appropriate at different levels of the school than others. Ultimately, Malvern is committed to producing happy, well-rounded children who will be able to move onto the next stage in their school life sure of their own abilities and with confidence.

IN ALL OF THE ABOVE AND ABOVE ALL, EDUCATION SHOULD BE AN ENJOYABLE AND REWARDING PROCESS.
