MSJ fosters creativity and bold-thinking, challenging and encouraging every girl to extend her personal horizons and realise her full potential.
MSJ is located in the heart of Malvern in Worcestershire, two hours from London and one hour from Birmingham, having excellent transport links. Great Malvern station situated opposite the Main School.
The School is home to a warm and welcoming community – girls, parents, staff and governors alike, enjoying the friendly and buoyant atmosphere of shared celebration, extolling personal success in every field of endeavour. MSJ offers a range of boarding options (ages 7 – 18) to fit in with the demands of modern family life and girls can choose from full, weekly or flexi boarding. In 2009, Ofsted recognised the exceptional standard of boarding with an ‘Outstanding’ inspection judgement, which extends to all areas of Malvern St James, as confirmed recently by ISI.
The School has excellent facilities which include modern Science Laboratories, Music Department, Drama Studio, four ICT suites and a multi–media Language Laboratory. We have a brand new £4.4 million Sports Hall which opened in October 2008.
Girls take full advantage of the enviable setting and superb facilities, which inspire a wonderfully rich and imaginative extra-curricular life. They leave Malvern St James as poised, self-assured and articulate young women who are able to meet and greet, with integrity, the challenges and risks of our modern world.
