The St. James’ family is a welcoming, thriving, innovative community; loving and inspiring, forgiving and challenging. 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. Our children are the lifeblood of our community and fantastic ambassadors for the younger generation. Although learning is our core purpose, so is laughter, friendship, challenge, exploration and collaboration. Our Christian values are Love, Hope and Forgiveness and together we can, and will, enrich the world.
