About Us

Principal's Welcome


I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to St James the Great Academy.

As the Principal of the school I am very proud of the school and its achievements and as an AET academy, our mission is pure and simple: 'To enable our children to lead remarkable lives'.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children learn through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. The staff work hard to provide a stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website. Visits are encouraged and welcomed. We would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school.
