Fees & Bursaries
Fees quoted are per term and are reviewed each academic year. Fees include dental insurance, personal accident cover and all meals during the School day. Additional insurances such as Personal Effects and Medical Cover is available through the School.
It is the practice of all fee-paying schools to request payment in advance at the beginning of each term. If payment of accounts is not received by the School by the first day of term, interest is charged on a daily basis, together with other administrative costs, as stated in the notes on the fees bill.
We offer a monthly direct debit payment scheme to help spread the cost of your daughter's fees, should you wish to.
Years 3 - 8: Day fees include 2 free nights per term and up to 5 paid nights per term - £80.00 per night
Years 9 - 13: Day fees include 3 free nights per term and up to 3 paid nights per term - £80.00 per night
Exeat Weekend: £80.00 per night
An additional administration fee of £1,400 per term is made in respect of international boarders entering the Sixth Form directly.
For girls studying under the Student Route, an additional £150.00 per term will be added to the School bill to cover Student Route compliance administration.
From 5 October, the Student Route replaces the Tier 4 Route. The Student Route, which falls under the UK's new points-based immigration system, improves on the previous Tier 4 route making for a more steam-lined experience for both sponsoring institutions and students. Visas that have been issued through the Tier 4 route are still valid.
All extras are charged in arrears as these are incurred during the term and are not notified to the Finance Department until after the event.
Our bursary programme is generous and designed to make it possible for as many girls as possible who meet Malvern St James entry criteria to take up a place here. Alongside sibling, military and Old Girl Association discounts, we also offer means-tested bursaries. These are worth up to a maximum of 40% discount from the fees. All Bursaries are granted on the recommendation of the Director of Finance, at the discretion of the Headmistress.
- Sibling discount: 10% for the second pupil; 15% for the third pupil (during those years where sisters are at school at the same time)
- Old Girls Association: 5% discount
- Military pay only 10%: for more information, please view the Forces Families page
The following range of insurances is available through the School. Policies are provided by Marsh Insurance Brokers and full details of each scheme are below.
