Malvern College HK

Starting in September 2018 we provided chess chess instruction to Malvern College Hong Kong in its first year of operation in Hong Kong.

We are very glad to be partner of Malvern College HK for chess instruction because this school is very clear and serious about bringing chess to its students (see this SCMP article: Chess will be a co-curricular activity at Malvern College Hong Kong) and let them reap the various cognitive benefits associated with chess.

Our training focuses on bringing children, whom mostly haven't played chess in any tournament format before, comfortably to play in individual and team tournaments. All our students can join our once per month "End of Month" tournament which is a controlled competition in which players of equal strength play for medals and trophies and learn how to play with a chess clock and time their thinking. 

Registration for Academic Year 2021-22 Term 3 is open.

All lessons will be online as per school direction as follows:

  • During half-day school schedule (end 1.30pm) the CCA will be held 3.10-4pm

  • During full-day school schedule (end 3pm) the CCA will be held 4.40-5.30pm

Allocation for this CCA is done by Malvern CCA Team. There is a "no cancellation" policy as cancellation affects allocation of students.


No refund, credit or make-up class will be provided if the student does not attend at the scheduled day and time. If classes are disrupted due to COVID-19 circumstances, these classes can be taken as make-up class during the full academic school year at school or at our Discovery Bay center at North Plaza or Sheung Wan.
