Our school is proud to share the exciting learning and experiences our students enjoy, with our immediate community as well as those who seek know more about our highly respected and sought-after school.



Malvern Central School is a proud state government school which dates back to its inaugural year of 1875. A long and esteemed history is notable and its reputation for providing quality education has been well established. The school is particularly proud of its progressive approach to educating students for the 21st century. The school leadership and staff of professional educators are intentional and purposeful in pursuing the optimal learning experiences for each and every student and as such, seek to provide all children with instruction that is personalised, contemporary, research-based, evidence-based and technologically rich. Our students from Prep to Year 8 are provided with a broad, rich and differentiated curriculum enabling the character strengths, talents and learning styles of each student to be harnessed, maximised and celebrated.



As a state government school, Malvern Central School is well positioned to draw on the most current and recognised teaching and learning theories and practices. As a Department of Education and Early Childhood Development school, we are able to access the best available education resources to support our teachers to support our students to learn, and to enjoy learning as a lifelong endeavour.



Malvern Central School is contemporary in its approach to educating our students. They learn in an environment that is conducive to preparing them for a rapidly changing world that demands technological capacity and intelligence, heightened interpersonal skills, significant emotional intelligence, resiliency and strong literacy and numeracy skills. Our students learn in flexible learning spaces and through collaborative structures with other students. They may learn in straight year home groups or, multi-aged or Level home groups and this can vary from year to year. Teams of teachers work together to plan for, instruct, assess, moderate student work and feed back to students to support personalised learning. The relationships developed between teachers and students, and students and students are integral to supporting an optimal learning environment. These relationships are intentionally and purposefully developed and cherished.



Professionalism, instructional capacity and accountability of our teachers are foundational to the education students receive ensuring each child’s learning is scaffolded in their learning zone. Significant resources are applied to ensure our teachers to provide quality instruction and evidence –based student outcomes. Teacher quality is crucial for optimal student outcomes and so our energies are directed towards coaching and capacity building of our teaching staff.

We have high expectations of our students and set challenges and opportunities for all students to strive to be the very best they can be both academically as well as morally. Drawing on values that include integrity, honesty, inclusiveness, kindness and thoughtfulness, our students are supported to develop as holistic and well balanced young people. We are proud of our students and in turn they have much to be proud of as they adhere to the high expectations required of them.

Our school community works in partnership with the school in recognition that it is critical that the partnership is respectful, has a strong values base and is always student-centred, recognising that our school’s core business is optimising student learning.
