Welcome to St. James’ Academy!

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.

Jeremy Payne, Principal
