Malosa Secondary School
Malosa Anglican Secondary School is a Grant Aided Mission National Secondary School based at Malosa in Zomba, Malawi, 25km north from Zomba City, 2km off the Zomba Liwonde Road. Malosa Anglican Secondary School, a co-education school, was established in 1928 initially as a Junior Primary School and later it became a National Secondary School.
As a Grant Aided Mission National Secondary School, Malosa Anglican Secondary School is mandated to accomplish one of the objectives of the Anglican Church in Malawi through the Anglican Diocese of Upper Shire, which is to offer quality Secondary Education to the people of Malawi as a continuation of one of the works of Jesus Christ who was also a teacher.

Grading System and Academic Performance
Malosa Anglican Secondary School is one of the best schools in Malawi in as far as academic performance is concerned. The school scores 100% pass rate at Junior Certificate Examinations (JCE) and above 90% at Malawi School Certificate of Education Examination (MSCE). Thousands of people have gone to various universities from Malosa. In the recent University Selection, the school has sent 52 students to various Public Universities in Malawi. Some students are also awarded scholarships to study abroad. We have Malosa students currently studying in India, Turkey, and USA among others. Thousands of influential people in national development are also fruits of Malosa.
We are proud of being the best Co-education Secondary School in Malawi. Challenges in educating boys and girls together need not to be overemphasised.
We are also proud of being one of the Secondary Schools which aims at letting its students acquire full knowledge from their teachers as expected from them and not only aiming at drilling the students to pass national examinations. One good evidence is that over the years none of the Malosa Students had ever been weeded at the University.
