1886 - ?

Malvern School of Art, Albert Road North, Malvern was established in 1886, when the Chair of the Malvern Educational Council explained that unlike nearby art schools in Worcester, Kidderminster, Dudley and Stourbridge, Malvern would not directly serve industrial production. Instead, the Malvern School of Art would provide ‘mental improvement and social pleasure’ for the people of the town and in 1907 Illingworth Varley the father of Eleanor Doris Varley was the headmaster. A new Malvern Technical College and School of Art opened in 1928 which was known as Malvern College of Further Education in the 1960s, then Malvern Hills College. A merger with Evesham College in 2000 created the Malvern campus for Evesham and Malvern Hills College, renamed South Worcestershire College in 2009. In 2016 the college merged with Warwickshire College Group but was closed in 2020. A new school, Malvern Hills Arts and Community College was due to open in 2023.
