Subject to Government guidelines, The Abbey College (Malvern) is reopening its doors on the 5th July 2020 to replace the Third Term lost to Coronavirus!

All Teaching will be done exactly as if there was no pandemic - just 11 weeks later.

The existing Parents and Students have shown tremendous enthusiasm for this initiative in beating the virus and making sure the Children’s education is unaffected, and no additional fees payable.

To assist the NHS staff, The Abbey College is also offering up to 30 free places (worth £500,000 in fees) in its day school to NHS staff working in local NHS facilities so their Children can catch up with lost education (and Summer School fun and activities) and hard working Parents can get back to some normality without worrying about children at home during the Summer.

The College is also offering a further 30 tuition free places to NHS staff wishing to have full-boarding places for the new term starting September 2020 (only boarding fees payable by parents taking up this extended offer).

” Whilst on-line teaching is certainly better than no teaching, it can never replace face to face class room education.” Said Principal Malcolm Wood.

” The ‘NHS Students’ will also have a unique opportunity of mixing in their free time with our Summer School Students from all around the world who are booking places subject to there being flights and no Government restrictions by the 5th July 2020.”

In recognition of the fantastic contribution being made by the NHS to society, we are offering 30 free day school places for all schooling from Year 7 to Year 13. If you are interested in boarding, this is also available at a cost of £14,600 per year (Normally, tuition + boarding fees = £29,200 per year).

Therefore if you are applying for day school entry only and not for boarding please ignore section 8 of the application forms.
