Life at St James is brimming with academic endeavour, creative energy, curiosity and thoughtful discussion. Our teachers are subject experts committed to delivering our broad-based and challenging curriculum in an engaging and inspiring way.
Our small, focused classes bring the curriculum to life through innovative workshops, trips and school events such as an atom workshop, school Sudoku Championship and week-long Shakespeare Festival.
Boys and girls are taught separately from Y1 but come together at break time and for trips, dramatic productions and class holidays, allowing them to benefit from the best of both a single sex and coeducational environment.
Our school motto is: ‘Speak the truth, be generous and kind and be your best’. We live our motto every day at school, from our buddy system for the very youngest members of the school, to our school dramatic productions where every child has a speaking part or our weekly music assemblies where every child has a chance to perform.
