Why St James

At St James we are proud to be different. Mindfulness, vegetarian lunches, and Sanskrit are just a few of the things that we do that other schools don’t. These differences are why our parents, pupils and staff love us; our ethos is truly unique.

We take regular pauses to allow the mind to join the present moment, refresh and engage with the joy of learning. This simple practice supports wellbeing and academic focus, and defines the school in so many ways. It is the jewel in the St James crown.

We are a forward thinking prep school with high expectations for the children we teach. As our pupils move on to Senior School, they do so with an excellent academic foundation, with deep and lasting friendships, an appreciation of stillness and the confidence to meet life’s challenges.

We’re proud to say that our pupils get great results. They just don’t get stressed about it.

“The education you provide combined with very important values like honesty, kindness, friendship etc. is just unique.” A current St James Parent
