St James Senior Boys’ School offers a holistic education where the spiritual and the academic work hand-in-hand. Mindfulness is a core element of our approach, manifesting itself in a sense of calmness, perspective and mutual respect. We encourage boys to connect with community, discover new passions and push themselves beyond their limiting beliefs. The result is a character-led education that marries academic excellence with outstanding skills for life. In this unique environment, your son will develop the confidence to become the man he is meant to be.
Please do come and visit us at one of our events. We are hoping to host in-person events from June onwards.
