Malvern St James School reviews

As an old girl, I really would not recommend going to this school. They talk so much about how women should lift other women up but meanwhile their staff and housemistresses gossips about students openly. Boarding school housemistresses had also shown favouritism while other staff like teachers were subtly racist. definitely mot a good experience and was not worth it at all
Manager Daria
We regret that your experience at this school was like this. Although the behavior of each tutor has no influence on the quality of education. Anyway, it was necessary to tell your curator or manager about this problem. Such moments are decided in conversations with the director, with which of course we can help.
