Holistic Leadership Development

As a leading advocate of holistic leadership development, Malvern College Chengdu offers extensive opportunities, to develop pupils as multi-cultural, internationally minded future leaders.  A Malvern education is not just limited to the academic curriculum, out of class we offer extensive co-curricular opportunities for pupils to engage in new experiences in many different areas.

The principles underlying the Co-curriculum are twofold:

  • To encourage students to engage in new experiences
  • To encourage a balance between creativity, action and service

Each year, a student is expected to complete a minimum of 60 hours of co-curricular activities, distributed between creativity, action and service. The aims are to help students to develop:

  • A willingness to inquire and an enjoyment of discovery
  • Autonomy and self-reliance
  • An appreciation of their own and others’ talents
  • Knowledge, skills and understanding
  • An awareness of the wider community
