St James’ First School

We are delighted to have very close links between the Church and St James’ School. The vicar goes in once a week to lead Collective Worship and there is are 2 teams of people who lead “Open the Book” weekly as well. The Church has 1 representative on the Governing Body.

The school moved premises, from next door to St James, to its current location in Park Lane in 1984. However there are regular visits to the church by individual classes and the whole school come for Christmas, Easter and other big festivals.
