Welcome to our

Senior School

Student voice helps drive the development of the infrastructure and programs on offer

Welcome to our Senior School. We pride ourselves on providing a prescribed curriculum that is supported by an inclusive and student-centred Pastoral Care program. We believe in nurturing our students’ wellbeing and provide them with a variety of enrichment and extension opportunities.

In addition to our comprehensive co-curricular program, we offer a range of additional activities for students to access, such as Creative Technologies, Marine Studies and Specialist Sport Programs. We provide a holistic education that goes beyond the classroom, allowing students to explore their passions and interests.

At St James’, we understand the importance of equipping students with skills that will help them thrive in today’s workplace. That is why our mandated curriculum includes opportunities to develop skills such as resilience, leadership, problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity and innovation. Through tasks and experiences, we actively promote these skills and prepare our students for their future.

We also believe in helping students explore all the pathway options available to them. Whether through vocational courses, university preparation, or alternative pathways, we encourage students to take charge of their education and make informed decisions about their future with the assistance of our dedicated teaching staff.

In our increasingly connected world, developing a global perspective is crucial. That is why we encourage our students to become active citizens and embrace diversity. Our core values of faith, excellence, justice, respect, integrity and inclusion are integrated into all learning tasks and experiences, providing a strong foundation for our students’ personal and academic growth.

We invite you to explore our Senior School further and discover the many opportunities and experiences we offer to help students thrive and succeed.
