Seeking the best


Welcome to St James’ website which I hope gives you a taste of our school. St James’ is a rapidly improving school providing a challenging but hands on approach to learning relevant to the modern world. Children take part in weekly Philosophy lessons which enable them to become high-level thinkers, questioning the world around them.

The strong pastoral care of our children enables them to take risks in a safe environment. Your child’s education does not only take place during the time they spend in school. What happens at home is just as important. We aim to build a partnership between home and school so that together we can make this important stage in your child’s life as rewarding as possible enabling your child to reach their full potential.

We welcome visits from prospective parents so feel free to contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
