Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form at St James Senior Boys’ School

Mr Nic Lempriere | Head of Sixth Form

We are immensely proud of our pupils entering Sixth Form study and similarly proud of the young men who leave us each year as friends, celebrating their respective successes in all fields of our holistic education, from academic endeavour to sporting prowess. 

Before they reach that point, each pupil must truly learn who they are. When pupils and parents meet us for the first time, they are met with the question “what sort of man do you want to be?” The St James Sixth Form truly allows them to answer that question and to take their place at university, in employment or in the wider world as an autonomous, happy, renaissance man. 

Our education enriches and inspires and we have a strong academic sound from the moment your son enters the Sixth Form. We encourage and celebrate academic prowess, and our achievements here are a testament to the hard work and care provided by our teachers and tutors. The professional and platonic bonds which join us all are most evident in the classroom, where mutual love of learning unites both pupils and teachers. This unity inspires our teachers to give their very best for your sons.

This year sees the introduction of an invigorated and inspiring new curriculum which meets the needs of all of our pupils and will serve them the most inspiring materials.

Academic results and sporting achievement are underpinned by having strong guiding principles and morals. Our young men actively work for the benefit of those they encounter on a daily basis, from the boys beginning their secondary education, through to their peers. Our Sixth Form are the archetype of “service over self”. It is with this in mind that I look forward to welcoming your sons into our Sixth Form and to giving them the tools and attributes needed to contribute to society with a keen mind, 
strong spirit and loving heart.

Mr Nic Lempriere
