A very warm welcome to our school!
We are a nurturing, happy school and know our children very well – one of the many advantages of being a small school. Our aim is to ensure that every pupil enjoys their time at St James’ while also providing our pupils with a wide range of learning opportunities that enable them to be well equipped to fulfil their full potential in our ever-changing world. We endeavour to foster a love of learning through our broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the development of confident and independent learners, whilst also striving for high levels of academic achievement. As a Christian school, we live and learn together as a community, emphasising the importance of respect, kindness and perseverance in our daily lives.
We look forward to meeting you and giving you the opportunity to experience the caring, positive atmosphere at St James’.

“What I love about St James is that everyone gets along and that all the staff are so kind and helpful. My best experience, being a pupil at St James so far, is being able to learn new things every day with friends who really care about me.”
Friendship and kindness run through everything we do at St James. I love spending time with my friends, both in lessons and when playing at break times.
“I really enjoyed my trip to the Roman Museum and I’m really looking forward to being able to go back!”
“I like St James because the teachers are really kind and they make learning fun! I’m looking forward to going on more school trips. My favourite experiences at this school are going up for praise assembly and the time I won a writing competition.”
“I like that at school, I feel safe all the time. If there are ever any issues, they are taken care of quickly and then we don’t have to worry about them. My best experience at St James was taking part in the Girls’ Football tournament in October 2021, and scoring the winning goal!”
