    Malvern St James is a leading boarding and day school for girls between the ages of 4 and 18, established in 2006 from the merger of Malvern Girls’ College and St James’s School. There are 450 pupils split equally between boarders and day girls.

    The school is located in the heart of Malvern in Worcestershire, only two hours from London and one hour from Birmingham the school has excellent transport links, with Great Malvern station situated just opposite the main school building. The MSJ bus service covers five counties to pick up and return girls each day.

    Aspiration and achievement lie at the heart of the School and each pupil is treated as an individual. Our aim is to promote excellence and innovation in teaching and learning throughout the school. Our commitment is to provide each girl with the challenges and support offered by a bespoke education which will allow her to develop her academic abilities to the full. The MSJ Aspiration Programme focuses on preparation for the most competitive UK and international universities and pathways. In addition, we aim to foster and encourage a wide range of extra-curricular interests. This individual emphasis is complemented with teamwork and a sense of collective responsibility.

    We offer full, weekly and flexible boarding and day places, allowing both parents and daughters to choose the option that is right for them. Senior girls remain in school until 6.10pm each day and participate in the busy activities programme or supervised homework sessions.

    Girls benefit from first class facilities which include an award-winning Science and Mathematics Centre which has recently been expanded to provide greater laboratory space and Mathematics teaching space, a Drama Studio, four ICT suites and a multi-media Language Laboratory. Our £4.4 million Sports Hall – opened in October 2008 – continues to expand both its facilities and services offered to the girls for personal training and fitness. The School has a new dedicated Sixth Form Centre for Day Girls and Boarders opened September 2014, featuring a lively Café Culture recreational area.
