OUR STAFF


It is the quality of the people, the teaching and the support staff, which makes a school special.

Every member of our community from our parents and teachers through to our cleaners and security, are all valued, respected and focused on putting our children first in all that we do.

All our teachers – except for some language teachers and teacher assistants – are UK nationals and UK trained professionals who bring a depth of international knowledge with them, but who are also flexible, fun and acutely aware of the learning needs of international students.

At Malvern College Egypt, we are fortunate to have a highly skilled, committed and friendly staff who will give their very best efforts for our children.
