Welcome

St James’s is a Voluntary Aided Church of England Secondary School, judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. We are currently judged to be in the top 3% of schools nationally for our teaching and learning.

Our motto of ‘Caring for Others † Achieving Excellence’ is central to everything we do. When young people join our school, they become part of our family and through this we develop their potential through academic success, personal and social development and self -discipline, based on the beliefs and values of Christian faith.

Our academic standards are very high, well above the national average. We are committed to a curriculum which offers a personalised approach, meeting the needs and abilities of each young person, whether they are gifted and talented or have special educational needs.

It is very important that our young people feel confident and secure at school and display the Christian values of respect for self and others. Our Pastoral Care provision was also rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and we take pride in the close links we have with parents and carers.

Our work within the community, locally and internationally, allows our pupils to see how they can take an active role in society and make a difference in the world.

As a Voluntary Aided Church of England School, we expect pupils and parents to be fully supportive of the Christian principles which form the foundation of the education and care we provide. Our intake reflects the commitment of parents to our Christian foundation and also recognises other faiths and service to others.

Although we are judged ‘Outstanding’ we are not complacent and continually strive to improve St James’s to make it one of the best schools in Bolton. We nurture our young people and our staff to be the best they can be and we hope that this is evident as you peruse this website.
