Welcome from the Headmistress

Mrs Carlien Shelley
Welcome to Malvern College Switzerland, a school bringing the best of British Education to Central Europe.

Nestled in the Alpine village of Leysin, with breath-taking views across to the Dents du Midi, Malvern College Switzerland is an inspiring place to live and to learn. As the youngest member of the MCI Family, we combine youthful vigour with pride in the traditions and expertise bequeathed to us by the Old Malvernian diaspora.

MCS is committed to developing outstanding young people who have the knowledge, skills and personal aptitudes to make a positive difference to the lives of others. Academic work forms the core of what we do, and we are very fortunate to have a superb team of teachers - hand picked from 1000s of applicants - to pass their expertise on to our pupils. Carefully calibrated classroom teaching is supplemented by a rich co-curricular programme designed to stimulate young minds.

We make the most of the opportunities for sport and vigorous outdoor activity that our location high in the mountains affords. Our pupils lead happy, healthy and active lives, and develop interests that will stay with them for life. Every member of staff believes fervently in the value of boarding education and celebrates the individuality of each pupil. We encourage the development of independence, to take calculated risks and to demonstrate the Malvernian qualities of humility and kindness. These qualities form the bedrock of success at our school - as they do in later life - and infuse everything that goes on at MCS.

We very much hope you will come and visit us, meet our pupils, talk to our staff, and experience for yourself the culture and chemistry that we have developed in our inspirational Alpine setting.
