Open Days

26th June 2021


Malvern St James is made up of five schools that were located in and around the immediate area of Great Malvern. Malvern Girls’ College, Lawnside, St James’s, The Abbey, and St James’s & The Abbey.

The founders of Lawnside, The Abbey, Malvern Girls’ College and St James’s School were all pioneering women who saw education as the key facilitator in opening up opportunities to women.

In 1919, the Imperial Hotel in Malvern was bought by two enterprising young women, Miss Poulton and Miss Greenslade, who turned it from a hotel to the home of Malvern Girls’ College. In 2006 this building became home to Malvern St James Girls’ School.
