Our Co-curriculum, consisting of art, music, drama, sport, outdoor pursuits, DofE, CCF and a huge range of further activities, works in collaboration with the academic and super-curriculum and is one of the essential pillars of life here at Malvern College.

The number of Co-curricular activities taking place every week at Malvern College tops 200, and this covers a very broad range: in addition to our core programmes, we offer service and charitable partnerships, yoga, mountaineering, coding, fashion, debating and everything in between, there really is something for everyone. Some pupils discover a love of partnerships work – this could be with local schools, or it could be globally focused such as the OSCAR Foundation – while others take on entrepreneurial, adventurous, or creative challenges.

Not only do we offer these opportunities, but we ensure we have the expertise and facilities to accommodate them. If you want to try mountain biking, where better to stretch your legs than on the Malvern Hills. Piano? We are an All-Steinway School. Fashion design? Our Faculty of Art & Design is one of the best in the country. And of course, sitting at the heart of the campus, the Malvern College cricket pitch is legendary among all Malvernians.

“Every young person is unique and therefore finding their individual pathway to success is an important part of their education. I believe that the co-curriculum programme at Malvern College delivers an open-minded learning environment for each and every pupil.”

Stephen Holroyd, Deputy Head: Curriculum

A bespoke approach

The structure of our Co-curricular programme is bespoke for every pupil so they have a balance of activities that can nurture their creative, active and service lives. We believe that offering this flexible approach to Co-curricular opportunities allows us to give pupils a wonderful opportunity to further expand their learning by working in collaboration with their academic studies.
