St James is no ordinary school…

Our aim is to provide an outstanding education to pupils from all backgrounds. Most of our pupils come from poorer homes and their parents have to pay for half the actual cost of educating their child. For many this means making major sacrifices but our growing numbers, along with our growing reputation, are a testament to the school’s success.

Thanks to our extraordinary supporters around the world – from Australia and New Zealand, to the UK and Europe and more recently to the United States – we have been able to raise the funds to cover the other half of the pupils’ fees.

But this year and in years to come we will rely on this continued generosity.

Whatever your interest, and wherever you are in the world, please read on and we thank you for any support that you are able to give to this exceptional school.
