“What I really like about this school is the willingness of teachers to aid students to seize every opportunity possible and their relaxed attitude when it comes to having a light-hearted conversation in the evening around the boarding area, especially with us 6thformers. Within the boundaries of professionalism, it is quite a teacher to student connection you do not see that often.
I am very much enjoying the A-Level Course in Biology, Chemistry and Maths here in Malvern. This summer I have successfully secured a placement for internship in a pharmaceutical company in my country for a period of 1 month which I believe will further help me gain more expertise in the field of pharmaceutical manufacturing. As a student with a scientific profile I am seeking a career in the branch of medical Biotechnology.”
