Take a behind-the-scenes look at what this school has to offer you and your child.
Following the example of its UK parent school, Malvern College Hong Kong (MCHK) is steeped in tradition but is still forward-looking. This International Baccalaureate (IB) candidate school gives its students the opportunity to continue their studies at well-established universities across the world. At MCHK, the aim is to develop independent individuals, with strength of character, responsibility and compassion. Let’s take a look at how they do it.
An education at MCHK means embracing the Malvern Qualities of risk-taking and resilience (along with self-awareness, confidence and kindness). The inquiry-based curriculum helps young children explore ideas and concepts, and prepares them for higher education. What’s also unique about the Malvern schools is its House System and Pastoral Care. Students spend quality time with their teachers and fellow house students and build a tight-knit and courteous community. With a teacher to pupil ratio of 1:10, there is great emphasis on personalised learning. Talent, interests and potential are encouraged in co-curricular activities.
MCHK has a strong focus on Science and Mathematics, similar to Malvern College UK which also has a strong track record in the Sciences. Taking advantage of its proximity to the Science Park and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, MCHK is always on the lookout for experiential learning opportunities with both centres. In addition to this, the school also teaches the fundamentals of coding from an early age. Another area that MCHK chooses to emphasise is child-led learning with a focus on mind and body development. A lot of learning takes place outdoors and surrounded by nature as this is important for a child’s wellbeing and developmental growth.
