School Structure 

The academic year begins in September and ends in July, and the official primary school entrance age is 6. The system is structured so that the primary school cycle lasts 6 years, lower secondary lasts 4 years, and upper secondary lasts 2 years.


MVST provides education for children from standard 1 to standard 8. It is our dream to one day support children up until their last year of secondly school.

We’re always looking for people wanting to join us on this incredible journey to fundraise for our charity and make a difference.


Please get in touch if you want to help us or want to find out more about our work in Malawi.
