St James Senior Girls’ School is an independent day school for girls aged 11-18, based in Kensington Olympia, and accommodating a two-form year group. From September 2016, our Junior School pupils will transfer at Year 7 (previously at Year 6) and we admit a further 20-25 pupils at 11+ from other schools.
We offer an education which draws out and magnifies the unique talents which are innate in every individual. We provide an environment which enriches the intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of our pupils in an atmosphere which supports unity and is conducive to the happiness of all.
St James pupils achieve the highest academic standards but we believe education to be a great deal more than simply the acquisition of exam results. Our teachers have excellent subject knowledge and have been chosen for their ability to devote themselves to the well-being and development of their pupils.
Girls work together, delighting in the achievement of others as well as their own. A St James girl is industrious, open-hearted and courageous. We encourage her to develop strength in self-discipline and the ability to live according to her intelligent understanding of what is valuable and true.
I look forward to welcoming you to St James whether at one of our Open Days, a School in Action visit or when your daughter comes for an interview.
Do please use these opportunities to speak to pupils and teachers who will all be delighted to help and answer any of your questions.
I wish you good luck in this important task ahead!
