Values & Ethos
To transform lives by providing opportunities for all pupils to achieve their maximum potential in a happy, safe and inclusive environment.
The Malling School aims to be an aspirational school that develops the resilience, curiosity, confidence and creativity of our students, to enable them to become independent motivated and compassionate life-long learners. We aim to provide opportunities for our students to flourish in a diverse, competitive and ever-changing global setting. We will encourage our students to take responsibility for their own learning and take every opportunity to actively engage with the wider international community.
