King James's School

Our School

King James's School is a unique institution. Steeped in history, with its foundation dating back to 1608, King James's School has a modern view of education.

Our aim is to provide a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment that encourages all to achieve to their best. 

We have excellent facilities including extensive grounds, five computer suites, an Independent Learning Centre and specialist teaching rooms.  The school provides a broad and balanced curriculum which, supported by first-class wrap-around pastoral care, allows all students to aspire towards and attain the highest standards of education.

In recent years staff at King James’s School have been involved in numerous research projects with a wide variety of local, national and international organisations. All of these initiatives have led to the school being at the forefront of development in Teaching and Learning and Pastoral provision.

King James’s is now entering an exciting phase in its development.  The school has expanded its facilities and courses, including a range of vocational options that prepare students well for life after King James's.
