Description

St James Senior Girls’ School is an independent day school in Kensington, Olympia in London for girls aged 11-18. We offer an education which nurtures and enriches the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of our pupils.

Our curriculum is academically demanding and wide. It is designed to encourage intellectual enquiry but is tailored to suit a range of ability. Our strong through-school focus on pastoral care equips our pupils with a wealth of mindfulness techniques and consequently they exhibit remarkable calmness under pressure.

Our pupils flourish because they are supported by our fantastic teaching team in a warm and caring environment. One of the hallmarks of a St James education is the strength of the friendships you make, and our active alumni community is a testament to that.

The school’s two-form entry means that every pupil is genuinely known by her teachers and our pupils really value the sense of being part of a ‘big family’. They look after each other by acting as ‘buddies’, either to new girls or within one of our four Houses.

We are strong in sport and our PE lessons take place either in the gym or playground on-site or off-site at the excellent local facilities of Linford Christie Stadium and King’s House Sports Ground. Our main sports are lacrosse, netball, athletics and football.

Our pupils are mainly drawn from south west, west and north London and transport links are excellent, so getting to us is easy. Our main school building is set back in a large, securely gated, garden courtyard and, just a 3 minute walk away from the main school building, is our Sixth Form Centre with its own lovely garden and large common room.

Our leavers go on to a wide variety of academic courses and disciplines – everything from mechanical engineering to modern European studies, Liberal Arts to geological sciences. The majority of recent leavers are at Russell Group universities and leading art schools and each year we have pupils who go on to Oxford and Cambridge.
