Getting to 

Malvern St James 

Girls travel to Malvern St James from a wide catchment area throughout Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.  

School Bus

For your convenience we operate a number of School buses to transport girls to and from School. The main School bus collects in the morning and departs from School at 18:10 after Prep or extracurricular activities. 

This is a private bus service for the use of Malvern St James Girls' School only and members of the public cannot, and do not, use this service.

A place on the School bus is available on a termly basis. If you have more than one child using the service we offer a sibling discount of 50% for the second child.

A place on the bus can be shared between two families, for example, if your daughter only uses the route in the morning, you would be welcome to 'share' the place and cost with a friend whose daughter uses only the return trip. 

We are happy to offer occasional use to families, in the case of emergencies and if there is a seat available on the required route (for example, if a parent's car has broken down).

Routes are reviewed on a regular basis and may change subject to demand.
