Welcome to St. James' Junior School. We pride ourselves on running a happy and friendly school. The staff and Governors are great believers in traditional family values, which we encourage and develop throughout the school.

As our Ofsted report shows, we maintain high standards of work and sport that are taught in a stimulating and challenging environment. Thoughtful consideration is always encouraged in all aspects of school life.

We were delighted to be included in the Chief Inspector for School's list of 100 highest achieving schools in the country, and as a consequence have been granted recognition as a Beacon School. We are also proud that St James was granted the status of "Investor in People" in 1996 and recognised in 2001.

In 2000 we were granted the Activemark Gold award in recognition for the wide range of sporting activities that the children participate in. We are one of the few schools in the country to hold this award.

We are all proud of these accolades, but are most pleased by the individual happiness and success of all of our children. This is always our greatest reward.

I hope that you find this prospectus interesting and informative. If you require any additional details please contact the school office and we will be pleased to provide further information.
