Open Day or personal visit by arrangement with the Admissions Office. A personal visit will involve a tour of the school and a chance to meet the Headmaster and other teachers.
This is arranged with the Admissions Office. Pupils will spend a full day or two in school, attending lessons with pupils of their own age. We try to arrange a day when the subjects, activities and sports taking place are of interest to the visiting pupil. For those considering boarding, it is also possible to experience an overnight visit.
Following a taster day, the offer of a place at St. James’ is made subject to the Headmaster receiving satisfactory references from a pupils’ previous school.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of performance in a Scholarship Exam. Sport and Music scholarships are assessed in accordance with the timescale below. We always do our best to consider good quality applications for awards throughout the year.
