Day girls at MSJ Prep are mostly from Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire. We are the only all-through girls’ school in the county and therefore we are the school of choice for many local families looking for an enriching single-sex educational experience for their daughter.
Getting to School
Whilst some girls are dropped off by their parents, many girls use the school bus. There are ten Malvern St James bus routes, serving five different counties, each with a number of collection points.
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. The School is 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).

Flexi-Boarding at Malvern St James
Many families with daughters in Year 3 upwards find flexi-boarding a great option. Some girls who come from slightly further afield, perhaps Oxfordshire, The Cotswolds, or Staffordshire, take advantage of one to three nights flexi-boarding a week. This allows girls the chance to engage with evening activities, whether academic or social and allows for a slightly later wake up call in the morning as she will be staying on site.
Day girls are each given two nights boarding per term at no additional cost so every girl can take advantage of boarding life at Malvern St James.
