Malvern St James Prep Boarding 

MSJ Prep Boarding

Boarding is at the heart of Malvern St James Girls’ School and all girls whether they be full, weekly, flexi, occasional or day boarders are a part of the boarding community. Boarding adds a special, holistic dimension to the pastoral foundation to the School.

MSJ Prep’s boarding provision is distinctive, enhanced by our exceptional team of experienced and dedicated House Staff. We have one junior boarding House, Batsford, which provides a much-loved home for a family of girls from Year 3 - Year 7.

Batsford is a beautiful house, set in its own lovely grounds, a stone’s throw from school. It is a real home from home for many girls including occasional or flexi-boarders who enjoy staying alongside our weekly and full boarders. As in all houses, the team is made up of three staff, two of whom are on duty overnight. There is also have a resident cat, Pippa-Pepperoni Batsford, and dog, Molly. We love having other girls to stay and, in the summer, spend as long as we can outside in the evenings. Winter is a time for hot chocolates and pyjamas or having fun with our Wii Dance.
