“Unique. A relaxed, yet focused atmosphere unlike any we have encountered elsewhere.” The Good Schools Guide.
Peace of mind. This is a message that goes straight to the heart of who we are and what we deliver as a school.
For our pupils, peace of mind comes from being in an environment where their ideas and thinking are not only celebrated, but matter. Where they understand their own definition of success. Where creativity, academic success and spiritual well-being walk hand-in-hand.
For parents, peace of mind is knowing that their child is in a vibrant atmosphere of inclusivity and focus. That they will be encouraged to be confident, 360 degree thinkers, ready to meet life’s challenges.
I hope you will join one of our school tours or Open Days so you can experience what sets us apart and see the many ways in which your child will thrive here. Please contact Mrs Martha Carslake, the School Registrar, for more details.
We look forward to meeting you.

Throwing it all the way back to last Thursday, when the children at St James Prep took part in the ‘Walk to school challenge’. The results show a HUGE difference in children walking to school that day, doing their part for the environment and getting fit in the process. Well done to all those who took part! . .
👩🏻🎨Artist of the Week👩🏼🎨1/07/19-5/07/19 🍊🍶Still life Y5 & Y6🍊🍶 One of the most cherished and important skills we master in art at St James is that of observational drawing and painting. This is where children learn to observe and record what they see directly from life. The Y5s & Y6s have made gorgeous watercolour studies of a blue bottle with tangerines. While drawing from life is a key principle and natural development in drawing practice, the benefits are far wider, as it provides a visual understanding not only of the usual shapes, patterns, perspective and colour, but the means to describe it. Maya and Pearls pictures especially describe transparencies and reflective properties of the glass. . . . .
