Inspiration at The Malling School

At The Malling School our teachers are passionate about their subjects and share that enthusiasm with their students.  Whilst following the national curriculum we allow ourselves the freedom, occasionally, to step outside the rigours of the timetable and pursue learning and investigation for its own sake. 

Achieving Excellence at The Malling School

At The Malling School we have high expectations of all of our students.  This means that they are stretched to aim for places at top universities, to become elite sportsmen and women or to pursue successful careers with major corporations.  Our students enjoy real-world learning opportunities, learning for self- development, career potential and real jobs.
