Message from Head Teacher

Welcome to the website of St James' C of E Junior School. We are proud to share our school with you and hope that you find our site useful and easy to navigate.  Our school council have been central in choosing the design and overall functionality of the website and we have held many meetings, with the children making tweaks so that it suits their wishes.  This in itself encapsulates everything we are doing here at St James' C of E Junior School: Children at the very centre of our decision making.

They often say that pictures speak louder than words.  As a growing website we hope that the many galleries will give you a clear insight into the daily accomplishments of our pupils and allow you to see the rich and diverse activities we provide.

We are fully committed to providing an engaging and varied curriculum that is designed to support all children and harbour a life-long love of learning.


If you would like to see more of our school, please make an appointment to come and look around.

We look forward to meeting you

Mr A Beattie
