Abbey College in Malvern, Worcestershire, England, is a small boarding school providing education mainly for students from countries outside the United Kingdom. The present college was founded in 1979 by MA Kaveh on a site that had been used for education since 1874.
It is located on a 70 acres (28 ha) campus on the flanks of the Malvern Hills between Great Malvern and Malvern Wells.
The school is co-educational with around 100 students on its roll and specialises in pre-university education providing courses at GCSE, IGCSE, GCE AS Level, A-level, Foundation Level and English as a second or foreign language (ESOL).
In November 2015, an Ofsted report rated the overall experiences and progress of children and young people as ‘good’ and commended the “enabling and positive atmosphere in the college”. The report stated that “Young people’s progress, safety and welfare are central to the way in which academic and boarding services are arranged. There is a positive celebration of international boarding and the overall enabling culture of the college is a clear strength that benefits everyone.”
In January 2014, Abbey College was fined £24,000 after pleading guilty to not reviewing existing fire risk assessments, these issues were addressed by the college.
In September 2017, Malcolm Wood was installed as the college’s new principal.
