Welcome from the Headmistress at Malvern St James

Welcome from the Headmistress

"Malvern St James Girls' School is a truly exceptional place for living and learning, inspired by the talents and energy of its girls and staff. I am proud to be surrounded by girls with such poise. From the youngest to the oldest, they are interested and engaged with the world around them, and able to hold their own socially and intellectually.

We encourage our girls to be ambitious, to follow their passions and to be confident: and to appreciate the value of hard work and determination. We want to show girls the full spectrum of interests that contribute to a balanced and happy life, and demonstrate the joy of finding something they love and pursuing it.

Hear from our Headmistress Mrs Raraty

There is something for everyone at Malvern St James. Intellectual, sporty, creative, scientific, musical, dramatic, a combination of these things: every girl is different, and here every girl will find her spark.In an age of fierce job competition, the careers landscape evolving like never before, and still a minority of women in leadership roles, young women can be forgiven for feeling unconfident or boxed-in about what they do next. At Malvern St James, we set out to untangle all of this. With superb value-added attainment, outstanding public examination results and a focus on giving our girls the soft skills they will need at university and in the work place, we are here to help them navigate their way with a support network of superb teaching and House staff, and first-class pastoral care.

Malvern St James is friendly, unstuffy, quirky: a school comfortable in its own skin.

We give our girls the freedom to find themselves. That’s why they are confident, capable and the kind of people you want on your team.

Choosing a school that’s right for your daughter is an important decision. Please do come and visit, and we’ll show you what we’re all about."

Mrs Olivera Raraty, Headmistress
