St James children are vibrant and generous individuals, each with their own talents, inventiveness and interests.
They are given every opportunity to achieve highly, and are supported in all areas at school. We encourage them to explore their passions and take their own initiative to develop a curiosity and love for learning. St James provides a warm and fun environment which fosters confidence, independence and motivation.
Academic standards are high with children achieving success at 11+ and move on to either attend the senior schools, or their secondary school of choice.
Our underlying practice of pausing or having moments of stillness throughout the day, alongside our virtues of truthfulness, generosity, kindness and being your best, provide a solid and calm base from which the children can draw resilience and self-reliance. We encourage a growth mindset so they can take risks and experiment with no fear of failure.
School life at St James is a balance of academic excellence, sporting achievement and creativity. We all enjoy the stimulating atmosphere, and value every member of the St James community, staff, children and parents.
