    St James' is a nominee in the current Community Grant Scheme from now until 30th September 2022.

  • Thank you for your donations!

    Published 21/04/22

    We are proud to announce that thanks to the generosity of our St James' school community, we raised £647 for this worthy cause. A special mention should go to Etta, who raised £80 by selling hand-painted rocks during the Easter holidays - well done Etta!

    Update: The Workshop has been in touch with us directly and wanted to thank everyone for their marvellous generosity and to say that the money really will make a difference in being able to keep going, feeding and supporting people who need their help.

    This non-uniform day was at the suggestion of our students, wearing blue and yellow in exchange for a £1 donation, to raise funds for a Ukrainian refugee drop-in centre we are in direct contact with based in Budapest, Hungary. 5 million refugees have left Ukraine since February and 10,000 are arriving in Budapest every day.
