The Academy at St James

St James’ is a welcoming Church of England Primary School where the appreciation of others is encouraged and attitudes of tolerance, care, concern and self-respect are developed in a happy, safe and secure environment.  At St James, we strive to provide our children with the very best to ensure they can be successful in whatever they choose to do.  We encourage everybody to work hard, accept challenges and take risks in order to be the best person you can be.

We have high expectations for our children and ask them to persevere, collaborate and use their imagination to fulfil their dreams.  At St James nothing is impossible and we have our slogan, which is Aspire, Achieve, Believe!

We ask our children, parents and local community to aspire to the very highest standards possible in all that they do. We do this to provide a platform for the children to achieve their very best and develop into responsible and thoughtful citizens. Our aim is to provide the children with the knowledge, skills and attributes to be successful lifelong learners.

We firmly believe that every moment matters! Our job is to provide an engaging and exciting curriculum for all of our children; it is to develop their literacy and numeracy skills so they can be successful in later life and it is to work hard with parents and our local community to raise aspirations for all.  We want the best possible education for your child and we will make sure that we achieve this by working together.

Everyone can achieve at The Academy at St James and through working in partnership we can create many magical memories for you and your child.
