Aims

The Downs Malvern aims to provide a first-class education in a secure, caring and disciplined environment where every child can fulfil his or her unique potential – academically, creatively, physically, socially and spiritually.

In order to meet this aim the School is committed to:

  • Providing a broad and balanced curriculum which values academic excellence but also attaches great importance to effort, enthusiasm and enjoyment in all areas of learning and activity.
  • Promoting the welfare of all children by developing their confidence and self-esteem, giving them responsibility and opportunities to exercise leadership, helping them to develop mature attitudes, and preparing them for their senior schools and adult lives.
  • Building a strong sense of community in which all feel valued and respected, where each has a contribution to make, and where there is a growing awareness of our common responsibility for the wider world in which we live, and especially our environment.

While The Downs Malvern is a school where Christian values, ideals and practice are considered to be important in implementing these aims and objectives, it also values diversity and warmly welcomes children of other faiths.

The school is registered as a Charitable Trust under the direction of a Board of Governors. The Headmaster is a member of the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS), the leading professional association for Heads of Independent Preparatory Schools.
