Vision and Ethos

At St James' we aim to provide a Christian welcoming nurturing and happy atmosphere in which your children will recognise themselves as learners; spiritually, academically and socially. We are driven to ensure your children will be resilient, independent learners, who feel respected, valued and positively acknowledged whilst recognising constructively the needs and value of others.

St James' has served the community for over two centuries and it is our intention that in the years ahead, we shall continue to serve; ensuring that we give all children the very best of outcomes.

It is our vision that children who come to St James' will have a foundation of faith on which to build their learning and resilience to face the challenges and opportunities in their lives.

Meeting the needs of children, inspiring a love of challenging learning and aspiring to Christian values can only be achieved through a partnership between school, home and Church. We only have one chance to educate our children. Being part of the St. James' family means we relish this opportunity to fulfil the possibilities of every child.
