The private school and camp of Abbey College Malvern was founded back in 1874, which allows all its branches and departments (including the prestigious London) to use age-old traditions and pedagogical practices today, not forgetting to adapt them to the passage of time.

Abbey College Malvern - the school is quite small, because every student here can count on individual attention and care. In each class, no more than 7 people study. Therefore, experienced teachers, if necessary, can quickly adjust the course, pull students in case of difficulties or lag. The process is assisted by personal supervisors, mentors, who work especially closely with high school students, outlining for them the optimal ways of entering the selected university.

The private boarding school works with all key British and international education programs: GCSE, A-level (two-year), Foundation, summer language camp and English as a foreign language (ESL) courses.
