Our Brand Concept
The education industry is characterized by the need for players within it to teach a curriculum, more often one not entirely set by itself. There isn’t one educational institution in existence that doesn’t want to claim itself absolutely unique, yet is encumbered by the curriculum issue.
The Malvern Brand takes on this issue from an entirely different angle – that it is the Malvern student that is uniquely different and that the Malvern environment and all its teaching staff and facilities are the “tools” that help the Malvern student find their own unique potential. Call it “creativity”or “out-of-the-box thinking – Malvern is where this elusive spark is discovered, nurtured and fanned into a glorious flame.
“A Different Thinking” is the line that sets Malvern apart from all others. It’s a line – and a philosophy – that has consequences on both sides of the divide. For us, it means having the mastery and the flexibility to not merely encourage but guide an unorthodox approach. For the students, it means having the work ethic and imagination to see beyond what the book says. For both sides, it requires consistent application to constantly challenge conventional norms and existing frontiers.
“A Different Thinking” is a wonderful platforms that isn’t “size” dependent – it’s all about the student’s individual quality, not the size of your campus. It renews itself every time you apply it because to engender a “different” thought is to automatically look upon any subject in a new and refreshing way.
