Your First Day

Malvern House London

Malvern House is committed to making sure your move to London goes smoothly. Your first day will not just be about meeting your class and starting to learn English in London, we will help you settle in too.

First of all you will receive a warm, friendly welcome by Malvern House staff, who are here to help at all times.  You will be invited to an ‘induction’ (Welcome Meeting) with members of the Malvern House team, who will give you information about the school, our facilities, and life in London.  You will also be given a Welcome Letter and Student Progress Diary. After the break, you will join your class and meet your teacher and the other students.

On your first day you will get a warm welcome from our school staff and information on:

  • Key staff in the centre and who to go to for help
  • Malvern House facilities and a quick trip round the school and local area
  • Malvern House extra services e.g study counselling, welfare support, social programme, free seminars
  • Online welcome pack
