Mission Vision and Ethos

At St James’, everything we do is underpinned by our mission statement from the Gospel of John:

“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full” – John 10:10

Our mission:

To give every child, regardless of background, starting points or ability, the opportunity to live life to the full.

Our vision:

To help each child reach their full potential, have integrity as a person and have a strong personal vision for adult life.

We are also immensely proud of the school’s unique Dominican heritage, and we strive to embody our school values – Excellence, Resilience, Integrity, Trust, Aspiration, and Service - each and every day.
