Entry Process for Malvern St James

Entry Process

Malvern St James welcomes families to come and visit us at Open Mornings, and in term time during weekdays, by appointment.

We are happy to arrange a Taster Day for your daughter to sample life at the School with no obligation. Parents are invited to meet the Headmistress to discuss their daughter’s education here.

Next steps are as follows:


Following a visit, Registration is the first stage in the Admissions process and this reserves a place for your daughter at Malvern St James (subject to the successful completion of the Entrance Examinations). 

Prior to your daughter sitting Entrance Examinations, you will need to complete the Registration documents and a fee is payable at this stage. 

You can fill in and submit a registration form online to start the enrolment process. Please use one of the following links.

Registration Forms

Please contact Admissions to request a hard copy of the Registration Form if you would prefer this method.

In order to complete the registration process, you will need to include the following with your online form:

  • Registration fee (£150 for UK residents/£200 for non-UK residents)
  • Copies of recent reports from your daughter’s current school*
  • A photocopy of your daughter’s passport front cover, photograph page and ‘Right of Abode in the UK’ page (if applicable)*
  • Health Questionnaire
  • Your daughter’s current school will be asked to complete a confidential report

We send an acknowledgement on receipt of registration. Girls are able to take their Entrance Examinations in September onwards, the year prior to entry. We also offer an earlier assessment in the June, the year prior to entry for girls joining Year 7 and 9. Any court orders or educational psychologist reports must be disclosed during the registration process.

*The UKVI has advised that girls without a passport should submit a copy of the parents’ passports which should be held on her file. This should be provided at the Registration stage.
