Academic Enrichment

At St. James’ learning is fun; active, enquiry-led and discovery based. We aim to ignite life-long learning, extending our ‘lessons’ beyond the classroom and curriculum.

Lessons are engaging and our approach encourages pupils to take responsibility for their own learning.

We take every opportunity to contextualise and enrich learning, from educational visits to local STEM industry and grey seal sanctuaries, to Inter-House Debating.

  • Ted-Style Talks
  • ECO-Society
  • National Coding Competitions
