Our Senior Schools

St James Prep is part of St James Schools. The Senior Girls’ School shares the Prep School site in Kensington Olympia and the Senior Boys’ School is in Ashford Surrey.

The happiness and wellbeing of all has underpinned the ethos of St James Schools since its foundation in 1975 and all three schools maintain that an all-rounded, balanced education is better for the child; that academic success, creative development and spiritual thinking are not mutually exclusive. Because of this shared ethos, many parents greatly appreciate the option for their child to continue to the Senior Girls’ or Senior Boys’ school for an all through education, and all Prep School pupils receive offers to our Senior Schools.

We also recognise that continuing to our Senior Schools is not the preferred option for all parents. Our approach to the 11+ programme is rigorous to ensure that all doors are open for all our pupils, whichever path they choose to take. We are also entirely independent when advising parents on the best secondary schools for St James Prep pupils and only take in to account the schools that will best suits a child’s interests and abilities.
