What The Good Schools Guide says..
St James Junior impressed us as such a kind and enlightened medium in which to culture young minds, that we occasionally had to remind ourselves that this was a school we’d stepped into and not a Botticelli painting. It was almost a relief to see one small boy aim...
What the school says...
St James is a vibrant and happy school community where spiritual and emotional health and development have equal importance with academic rigour and physical well being. Short periods of stillness and reflection are enjoyed before and after lessons; a connection with something peaceful and unchanging in today's busy world.

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2009, Mrs Catherine Thomlinson, BA in English and history from Roehampton (40s). A St James’ disciple to her fingers’ ends, having spent almost all of her teaching career here after being educated at sister school, St Vedast (brief spell in South Africa before coming back to the fold). Two children, a son and a daughter, both of whom attended St James from age 4 right through senior school. A thoroughly lovely lady who radiates kindness, humanity and good humour, and this despite having a shocking cold when we met. The study oft proclaims the head, we’ve found, and Mrs Thomlinson’s was sparely but beautifully furnished, bright and calm. Amidst some exquisite pictures of quiet seas, a joyous tract reads, 'Let your light shine!' – and hers most assuredly does.
Special Education Needs
Underlying the ethos of St. James is the vision of the realisation of the potential of each child. The aim is to maximise strengths and minimise the barriers to full participation in both classroom and school as a whole. The approach is to discover the specific barrier through observation and testing and then, together with family and teachers, adopt the most intelligent way forward. St. James is committed to providing learning support for all pupils accepted into the School.
