Girls travel to Malvern St James from a wide catchment area throughout Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
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 are departs from School at 18:10 after Prep or extra curricular activities.
A place on the School bus is available on a termly basis. It 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.
