Dear Parents

First and foremost, thank you for considering Malvern College Hong Kong as a school for your child. As a parent myself, I relate to the importance that this decision has for you. We share your concerns about your child’s educational well-being, and it is with this in mind that we have set out to build a caring, supportive and ambitious learning environment.

A Malvern education is about educating the whole person. Academic achievement alone will not suffice to be successful in school, university and beyond. Only an education of mind, body and heart enables young people to confront and succeed in our rapidly changing world. By uniquely combining academic excellence, extensive co-curricular activities and strong pastoral care, we enable Malvern pupils to maximise their academic potential, develop their talents and personal interests, and flourish as individuals.

As the Founding Headmaster of Malvern College Hong Kong, I am immensely proud of our achievements since we opened our doors in August 2018. We have built a thriving, vibrant school community that is growing into the space of our state-of-the-art campus. The Malvern spirit has well and truly begun to establish itself!

Please visit us to see our fantastic facilities, and experience the warmth and enthusiasm of our pupils and staff. I also invite you to consult the QR code below to learn more about Malvern College Hong Kong and what a special place it is.
