Meet the Abbey College Senior Leadership Team

Mr Malcolm Wood, Principal

It is with pride that I represent Abbey College in Malvern as Principal. Together with my dedicated team, I will do my utmost to continually improve the educational experience we offer. It is a pleasure and a privilege to help young people to grow in confidence and ability as they reach their academic goals.

Involved in all areas of the school, I have overall responsibility for ensuring all aspects of the academic and boarding sides of the college run smoothly and effectively.

Having boarded as a teenager in France and studied at a Czech university, I have gained considerable insight into the feelings of international students.

My professional experience includes British independent and boarding schools; British international schools in Uganda and Turkey; language schools in France and England; and a secondary school in the Czech Republic. I have been head and deputy head; subject and phase leader; teacher of the English National Curriculum and teacher of English as a foreign language.

Mr Mehran Noor, Bursar

My first experience of Abbey College was as a student. I studied A Levels at Abbey College before moving on to University. My name is even on the board as student of the year in 1979! I returned in 1986 as a member of staff and have been here ever since. Whilst working here I have been involved in many different areas. The main departments I am currently responsible for are Finance, Contracts, Recruitment and Maintenance.

I am proud of what Abbey College achieves and the way our staff care for our students.
