Our aim at St. James' is to provide a happy, caring , family atmosphere within a Christian community, in which each pupil can develop academically, emotionally, physically and socially.We recognise that each child is unique and should be treated as an individual, and that the enormous range of development every young person undergoes from the age of 2 to 18 years should be nurtured in a great variety of activities - social, cultural and sporting as well as academic.Values of loyalty, respect, tolerance, responsibility, team spirit and self-discipline are promoted in every aspect of life at St. James'.St. James' School is a day and boarding School which exists to educate young people, within a caring community, based on Christian principles. It is an integral part of the Woodard Corporation, supporting the tenets of the founder, Nathaniel Woodard, offering an experience of Anglican worship and welcoming children from all faiths and no faith at all. Every pupil, whatever their race, gender, nationality or creed is offered equal opportunity to develop their individual strengths and interests.We aim to enable and encourage pupils to fulfil their potential academically within the context of a full and exciting range of activities. In the classroom and beyond, we seek to develop the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, emotional, creative, physical and practical qualities and skills of each pupil. We aim to lay the foundations of confident young people by providing a well-balanced and coherent curriculum which encourages both independence of mind and teamwork. Through individual attention and expert advice, we aim to enable each student to move on to Higher Education. We seek the highest standards in Games, Music, Drama, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the work we do in our clubs.We hope that through our pastoral care system, involving both staff and pupils, all children will feel valued and that they will develop a sense of responsibility, leadership and caring for others, preparing them for the challenges of life in today's multicultural and fast-changing society. We make a special effort to maintain a friendly and well disciplined environment. We seek to work in partnership with parents and to communicate with them effectively.We value having an active governing body of committed individuals, from a range of backgrounds, to underpin our School in its quest for continuous improvement and growing prosperity. We aim to recruit and retain staff of high quality and to develop their skills and careers through sensitive management and training. We seek to build links with the local community and to play our part nationally and internationally. Enjoying European Languages from an early age, and building links in Europe, is important to us.
