Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the foot of the majestic Malvern Hills, Malvern St James is a leading Boarding and Day School for girls aged 4–18. We are renowned for offering exceptional teaching and a culture which inspires a passion for learning.

Aspiration, achievement and rigour lie at the heart of the School, and our girls are encouraged to explore their academic and extra-curricular talents. Every girl matters to us, and our size means that we can offer an individually tailored education.

Malvern St James Girls’ School

Enrichment is embedded throughout, with an outstanding array of opportunities – from Academic disciplines to Expressive Arts, Sport, and more – available for all. Our cutting-edge facilities include an award-winning STEM Centre, dedicated Drama Centre and an outstanding Sports Centre.

The Prep Department, Senior School and dedicated Sixth Form Centre sit together on the main school site, whilst Boarding Houses are a stone’s throw away, and a short walk from the town of Malvern where girls can go to shop, have coffee, or to see a film or play as they grow older and more independent. As well as full or weekly boarding, girls can flexi-board one, two or three nights per week.


Education is tailored to each individual’s strengths and our high quality teaching and exceptional choice of subjects actively stretch girls on every level. MSJ’s stimulating environment fuels intellectual curiosity and independent thinking, enabling girls to achieve impressive academic results.

The curriculum also supports pupils who need special provision including very able pupils, and those for whom English is an additional language. Those who have specific areas of expertise have adapted timetables to allow them to focus on their specialism, giving time to practise and train, with personalised coaching and mentoring sessions.

Our ‘Russell Up’ provides preparation for the most competitive UK and international universities and career pathways.

Academic, Drama, Music, Art, Riding, Technology and Sport Scholarships are available and our Founders’ Awards bursary programme enables outstanding girls applying for Sixth Form to access the excellent educational opportunities offered at MSJ. We also offer generous bursaries.


The School benefits from being positioned in the small but culturally lively town of Malvern, on a direct rail route from London Paddington. The M5 and M50 are nearby and London, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester airports are within easy reach.
