If you're here, it means that you are looking for the best possible opportunity for your child's education. At Malvern College Switzerland (MCS) we are here to guide you through the process to get your children started on their journey to academic success.

We understand that choosing the right academic institution for your child is not an easy decision and represents a considerable investment. With this in mind, we are available to answer any questions you may have to help you decide if MCS is the right fit for your family.

For parents based in Switzerland, or able to travel easily, we would be delighted to meet you personally to discuss the needs of your child.

We are a small school with a current maximum capacity of 150 students. Our small size means we can offer a very personal and bespoke service, but it also means we have tight restrictions on entry. We encourage prospective applicants to get in touch with us as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

In response to the current situation, we have limited the visits to our campus in order to do our part to ensure a healthy environment. We are, however, more than happy to take you on a virtual tour, provide you with supportive media and answer any questions you may have regarding the curriculum as well as our boarding school and the village of Leysin.
