Uniquely St James

Unlocking their best selves

St James Senior Girls’ School

Founded in 1975, we are an independent day school for girls aged 11-18 located in West Kensington, London.


In keeping with the ethos of St James Schools, pupils practise regular pauses or times of quiet throughout the day to promote their appreciation and understanding of mindfulness.


St James cares for a pupil’s spirit, mind and body. All pupils study Philosophy to explore and challenge ideas in a respectful and inclusive way.


Creating a vegetarian school in 1975 was a reflection of the belief that humans should be kind to themselves, others, and the environment to grow holistically.
