St James Academy is a truly comprehensive school embracing the talents of all its students and celebrating the rich cultural diversity of the area that surrounds it.
I am delighted to report that the school is at an exciting time with our last Ofsted Report confirming the progress we have made over recent years. In addition, St James Academy is proud to be part of the newly-formed Dudley Multi-Academy Trust, a partnership of four local schools under the sponsorship of Dudley College of Technology.
We strive to provide the highest standard of innovative teaching and learning and enhanced opportunities for all our students. We are determined to become a centre of excellence and are constantly seeking to recruit and develop teachers of the highest calibre who are able to inspire our students to enjoy learning, to achieve high standards and to aspire to become lifelong learners. The school continues to invest heavily in training opportunities for all staff to give them the support to develop in their chosen role and beyond. The philosophy is simple: this school will ensure the success of all students through outstanding teaching.
There is also a strong caring ethos in the school which ensures high levels of support for students and creates an atmosphere of mutual respect throughout the school. Our students are challenged to extend their interests through a wide programme of extra-curricular activities, sports teams, enrichment activities and cross-curricular Focus Days.
St James Academy is a rewarding, challenging and supportive school which makes a real difference to young people and which invests in everyone associated with the school. It's a great place to be!
You are most welcome to come and see the school in action for yourself and I look forward to meeting you in the very near future.
