Malvern College Hong Kong
Malvern College Hong Kong opened in September 2018. The school started with approximately 380 students aged 5 years to 13 years in Years 1 to 9, rising to 960 places when full, with students aged 5 years to 18 years in Years 1 to 13. Malvern College Hong Kong will offer the full International Baccalaureate curriculum, Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. The majority of students will have an international background reflecting this vibrant international city as a hub of Asia.
Malvern College Hong Kong will be located near the Science Park in the New Territories, yet with easy access by both road and rail from all areas around Hong Kong.
With the added attraction of proximity to the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well as the Hong Kong Institute of Education, the area will provide an excellent cultural and academic environment for teaching and learning.
Malvern College Hong Kong will place equal emphasis on the personal and academic development of the individual student, combining a strong focus on Mathematics and Science with a wide-ranging programme of co-curricular activities. The school will benefit from its unique location by offering experiential learning through Forest School activities and outdoor pursuit opportunities. Assigning students to houses will help foster team spirit and enhance students’ sense of belonging, helping bring the benefits of a boarding school environment in the UK to an international day school setting in Asia.
Malvern College Hong Kong will launch a scholarship programme for students from socially underprivileged and ethnic minority backgrounds with outstanding academic performance, ensuring high quality international education is accessible to students from various cultural and family backgrounds.
The school will be managed by Malvern College’s Chinese partners, Babylon Education. The Founding Head of Malvern College Hong Kong, Dr Robin Lister, took up position in Hong Kong in September 2017. Dr Lister was previously Senior Deputy Head at Malvern College UK.
