Pastoral Care Boarding and Day

The care and development of each individual pupil is the school’s primary concern. We aim to enhance that development through the process of living as members of a community with a common purpose.

Our traditional full boarding school experience will allocate each pupil to a House where a ‘Housem’ (Housemistress or Housemaster) will oversee pupils progress through the College, and help to prepare them for life beyond school. Every House will also have an Assistant Housemaster/mistress and a Matron to offer support together with a team of academic tutors, many of whom will run clinics to provide extra academic support.

Malvern College Chengdu has four Houses, each of which will provide boys and girls with a family base. All Houses have their own kitchenettes, recreation rooms, and common areas with a range of facilities, such as table tennis, snooker, and a TV and DVD player. A variety of House outings, from hiking to movies, or a Sunday afternoon baking session will also be offered. Houses will also produce their own plays, singing groups, debating teams etc. and all pupils will be encouraged to compete in the many inter-House sporting events.
