Malvern College is an independent coeducational day and boarding school in Malvern, Worcestershire, England. It is a public school in the British sense of the term and is a member of the Rugby Group and of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference. Since its foundation in 1865, it has remained on the same grounds which are located near the town centre of Great Malvern. The campus, currently covering 250 acres (101 ha), is set against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills.
There are currently about 660 pupils enrolled at the school, aged between 13 and 18. Additionally, there are about 310 pupils aged from 3 to 13 at The Downs, Malvern College Prep School, in nearby Colwall in Herefordshire. Across the two schools, in total, there are nearly 1000 pupils.
Among the alumni of the College are at least two Prime Ministers, two Nobel Laureates (five Nobel Prizes including prep school alumni), an Olympic Gold medalist and many other notable persons from different walks of life including science, law, the military, business, politics, literature and sports. The novelist C. S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia, is a former pupil of the school.
In September 2012 the college opened its first international school, Malvern College Qingdao, in Qingdao, China.

Famous quotes containing the words college and/or malvern:
“... when you make it a moral necessity for the young to dabble in all the subjects that the books on the top shelf are written about, you kill two very large birds with one stone: you satisfy precious curiosities, and you make them believe that they know as much about life as people who really know something. If college boys are solemnly advised to listen to lectures on prostitution, they will listen; and who is to blame if some time, in a less moral moment, they profit by their information?”
—Katharine Fullerton Gerould (18791944)
“Ye elms that wave on Malvern Hill
In prime of morn and May,
Recall ye how McClellans men
Here stood at bay?”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
