Virtual Open Day
Welcome to St James's CE High School
A very warm Welcome to St James’s!
Every year we welcome over 1000 people to our Open Day & Evening events and give them an insight in to our school. With local government restrictions in Bolton, sadly, we feel it would be unwise to open our doors this year.
We have created a collection of videos, and hope to give you a good overview of life at St James’s and allow you see what we offer our young people.
We believe that these videos, our admissions presentation and our ‘FAQs’ will answer any questions you may have.
If you require further information following this, we are planning to host a ‘live chat’ event in the very near future and we will communicate the date of this via our website.
