Prep School

Welcome to St James Prep School

“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.
