List of Old Malvernians
Old Malvernians are former students of Malvern College, an independent day and boarding school in Malvern, Worcestershire, England that was founded in 1865. Originally a school for boys aged 13 to 18, it merged in 1992 with a private boys primary school and an independent school for girls to become coeducational for pupils aged 3 to 18.
Many former pupils have gained recognition in such fields as the military, politics, business, science, culture and sport. Among the most famous are spymaster James Jesus Angleton, former head of the CIA's counter-intelligence; Aleister Crowley, the controversial but influential occultist; actor Denholm Elliott, sportsman R. E. Foster, the only man to have captained England at both cricket and football; and novelist C. S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia. Other well-known personalities include businessman Baron MacLaurin, a former Chairman of Tesco and Vodafone; Jeremy Paxman, journalist, author, and BBC presenter of Newsnight and University Challenge; and Baron Weatherill, the former Speaker of the British House of Commons. Old Malvernians who have become heads of state or government include the eponymously titled Viscount Malvern and Najib Tun Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia since 2009. The former was the British Commonwealth's longest serving Prime Minister by the time he left office. Old Malvernian Nobel Prize winners include Francis William Aston, winner of the 1922 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, and James Meade, winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1977.
