Welcome to St. James’ Academy!

The St. James’ family is a welcoming, thriving, innovative community; loving and inspiring, forgiving and challenging.  Together we can, and will, enrich the world!

Our Purpose is to provide an engaging, relevant education within a Christian environment, where everyone flourishes academically, socially, physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.

At the heart of everything we do are the children.  The seven years they spend with us is an extremely precious time of enormous growth and change.  We seek to make every opportunity a learning experience and squeeze the value out of every inch of every day.  You will see from much of the content of this website how central the children are and what fantastic ambassadors they are for the younger generation.

Although learning is our core purpose, so is laughter, friendship, challenge, exploration and collaboration.  Please enjoy looking around the website, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Our Christian Values are Love, Hope and Forgiveness.  Our Learning Values are Creativity, Independence, Questioning, Reflection and Teamwork.

Jeremy Payne, Principal
