We are a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School and welcome all applicants, wherever they may live. We welcome visits to the school by families who may be interested in applying - just give us a call on 01946 695311 and we can make an appointment for you to come and see us.



Although St James'CE Junior School has a designated catchment area, we also have a number of children who attend from surrounding areas. Applying for a place for your child couldn't be easier. All admissions for Year 3 starters for September 2017 are arranged through Cumbria County Council School Admissions Team.
