Creativity, academic achievement, and spiritual wellbeing form equal pillars of the education provided to pupils aged 2-11 at St James Preparatory & Nursery School.

Founded in 1975 by philosophically inclined parents, St James is an independent day school benefitting from a distinctive curriculum uniting a philosophical approach to the development of essential life skills, with emphasis on academic excellence. The school actively supports pupils’ emotional wellbeing through a focus on mindfulness and by fostering a positive school atmosphere built on mutual respect, trust and kindness.

St James Preparatory & Nursery School enjoys an enviable location in Kensington Olympia in London, and The Good Schools Guide describes the school as “Unique. A relaxed, yet focused atmosphere unlike any we have encountered elsewhere”.

Pupils at St James Schools are familiar with a regular mindfulness practice – ‘The Pause’, a short period of quiet reflection and stillness taking place at the beginning and end of each lesson. This is an opportunity for students to join the present moment, refocus and digest the fruits of their learning, demonstrating the value the schools place on spiritual happiness as well as academic success. St James believes that quality of attention and power of concentration are essential to an effective and happy way of life, and encourage students and staff to appreciate the importance of the present moment.
