The school, with both day and boarding options, can accommodate 1,200 students once the new campus is in full operation. Malvern College Chengdu’s new campus is lying in Xinjin, close to Mumashan area, next to a high-speed rail station and a metro station. The campus is surrounded by scenic hills and rivers, it is a prime location for an academic institution of high global calibre. With a planned area of 10 Hectares (150 Mu) and a total building area of 60,000 sqm, the college will offer secondary school, primary school and pre-school education.
The Tsinghua University Architectural Design Institute has incorporated the feedbacks from the UK and Hong Kong leading architects with the teaching philosophy and aims of Malvern College Chengdu to create a British-style “Forest Campus”. Incorporating both British architectural features and modern design concepts, the campus is equipped with many state-of-the-art facilities, including a heated swimming pool, a multi-purpose indoor sports hall, and a theatre. Both the teaching and dormitory buildings are equipped with central air-conditioning and fresh air systems, and the kindergarten utilises under-ﬂoor heating.
The College’s unique lay-out of “1 axis, 2 belts and multiple clusters” ensures optimal utilization of the environment. The library is located at the end of the central landscape axis, while a free-ﬂowing secondary landscape belt separates the campus into distinct “active” and “quiet” zones, which creates a natural, comfortable environment.
