About St James Schools

St James Schools offers a distinctive approach to education which provides for the intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of every child.

Founded in 1975 by philosophically inclined parents, our three independent day schools offer a distinctive approach to education which provides for the intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of every child; they aim to provide an environment in which a child can discover all that is best within their own nature.

We actively support our pupils’ emotional wellbeing, incorporating mediative practices and fostering a positive school atmosphere built on mutual respect, trust and kindness.

Our schools enjoy enviable locations in London and Surrey: our Nursery, Preparatory School and Senior Girls’ School are close to Hammersmith, while the Senior Boys’ School occupies a stunning 33-acre site in Ashford, with great transport services from London.

Our Ethos


St James Schools offers an education which draws out and magnifies the unique talents inherent in every child. We provide a loving and caring environment based on integrity, mutual trust, respect and understanding, and seek to enrich the intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of all its pupils.

Each pupil is treated as an individual and is supported within an environment which develops a love of learning, awareness and consideration of the needs of others, and the talents, strength, wisdom and moral tenacity to offer themselves in a spirit of unselfish generosity for the benefit of humanity.
