Lower School

“St James is the perfect school for my child. It is process oriented, it instills curiosity and love for learning and its ethos is an inspiration.”

– St James Parent

A strong focus continues to be placed on Literacy and Numeracy, with the children building and developing confidence in these core subjects.

While most of the children’s teaching is with their Class Teacher, they also have the benefit of specialist teachers in Sports, Music, Drama, Art and Sanskrit.

Teachers are committed to nurturing not only the talents that are already apparent, but the potential of every child, and focus on discovering each child’s unique interests, strengths and areas for development. 

Children enter Year 3 as confident learners with strong communication skills, well equipped to deal with the joys and challenges they will face as they progress through the school.

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.
