Dear OA,

Securing a Bright Future for Abberley Hall

teachers and heads of departments will benefit from shared best practice with Malvern
College, invitations to attend workshops and conferences held at the College whilst
developing innovative and inspiring teaching that will enable our pupils to excel in their
academic studies and co-curricular activities. There will also be opportunities to
combine support services and to draw on the expertise that a larger organisation

I am confident that Abberley Hall joining the Malvern College family of schools will
secure a stronger, sustainable and bright future for our school and our community of
pupils, staff, and OAs.

some Questions we thought may well arise in relation to this.
