St. James Senior Girls’ School – Overview
St James Senior Girls’ School is one of the St James Schools founded in 1975 with the vision that education for pupils from the ages of four to eighteen would nourish the whole being spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically. The original belief in the importance of studying philosophy, alongside the best of traditional British education, underpins the ethos of the school. The intention is to inspire an admiration for wisdom together with an appreciation of the essential part it plays in discovering how to live happily, freely and in a spirit of unity. The main aim of the school is to provide a balanced education, which will promote true happiness and fulfilment for each individual in its care. The welfare of the pupils is stated to be first and foremost. Although without specific religious affiliation, the school attaches importance to Christian principles and observance, whilst welcoming the contribution that all faiths can make to an understanding of spirituality. Pupils come from families associated with all the major faiths and none, and represent many different races and backgrounds. The school is a charitable trust, administered by a board of governors which also oversees the other St James Schools.
