School Life

Senior School is a journey to independence. Our aim is to ensure that every child within our school leaves St. James' as a happy, healthy, confident, and independent individual, fully prepared for their future endeavours.

St. James’ School prides itself on supportive and trusting relationships, recognising many different forms of success and maximising individual potential through bespoke pathways. Our experienced and committed teachers nurture pupils through these formative years, modelling self-reflection in the pursuit of lifelong learning. Opportunities to develop talents in art, drama, music, public speaking, and sport are abundant; each student can choose the options that best support their passions alongside supportive and kindred students who are equally keen to take ownership of their learning.

We’ll help your child become ‘Future Proof’, fostering the essential skills that offer the keys to fulfilment in life. Pupil-centred, we aim to build inner confidence, offer opportunities to build resilience, promote creative thinking, encourage different opinions, and for every student to make an impression. The Senior department is the gateway to adulthood and independence; where every child grows into themselves. 

Our class sizes are capped at 18. This allows our pupils to benefit from time with their teacher, ensuring tailored learning experiences that cater to their individual needs, fostering a cohesive and supportive community atmosphere within our school.
