Celebrating our new playground walls

You may have heard that during half term, two incredible installations were added to the playground. We now have two fantastic, educational walls at either end of the playground – a history timeline wall and a map wall. The Prep School were shown the walls altogether during assembly on the first day back at school.

They were really impressed and excited to get back out there again at break time to take another look.

This was a School Council initiative and over the last couple of years, members of the team have worked really hard on making this idea a reality. 

The project was funded by the Friends of St James, so a huge thank you to all the parents who have volunteered their time at the Christmas Market and other events; it would not have been achieved without your support. We think they look superb!

The Pause

At St James, we feel it is important to introduce our pupils to stillness and allow them to discover how to be inwardly free and deeply at ease within themselves. A short period of 5-10 minutes at the beginning and middle of every day is allocated to quietude in which pupils may meditate, contemplate or simply be still – according to their own spiritual inclinations.
