Ships

Malvern St James has Ships for School competitive events. The current fleet at Malvern St James consists of Daring (royal blue), Dragon (gold), Trenchant (red) and Triumph (dark blue).

The Ship system involves inter-ship competitions in Sport, Drama and Music. Sports Day is also run on a Ships' basis. All girls are expected to attend inter-ship competitions. 

Each term rivalry is encouraged between the Ships to win the Admirals' Cup. This trophy is awarded to the Ship that has gained the most points during the term. There are two categories in which points can be gained: 

  • Merits and Distinctions 
  • Success in inter-ship competitions 

Each ship is led by a Housemistress Admiral, a Captain, a Vice Captain and a Skipper (Preparatory Department). All other staff are allocated to Ships. Captains and Admirals meet every half term to discuss policy and new ideas. Ships' meetings are also held each half term. Ships should make contact with their namesake vessel, and reciprocal visits may be made between our own ships and RN representatives.
