Co-educational Preparatory School
"Where children are encouraged to use their initiative and to keep their minds and eyes wide open. It is very special... an unforgettable experience..”

The Downs Malvern is a vibrant boarding Prep School for girls and boys aged 3 – 13.

It is set within its own beautiful 55-acre campus, in the village of Colwall, on the western edge of the Malvern Hills. Its very close association with Malvern College ensures that children have the opportunity to move on to one of the UK’s top senior schools after completing Year 8.

Pupils throughout this successful and happy school benefit from excellent teaching alongside superb extra-curricular, boarding and sports facilities, including junior and senior Science laboratories, a Design Technology suite, Art studio, Music School, a multi-million-pound Sports hall and all-weather sports pitch.

The School offers a diverse and creative curriculum in the belief that pupils thrive on challenge and discovery. There is also an exciting ‘Hobbies’ and ‘Activities’ programme from which all pupils find something to enthuse and inspire them whether that be indoors or whilst using the magnificent outdoor environment in which the school is sited.
