Temporary School Closure


Regretfully, St James Academy will be closing temporarily on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th November 2020 and will re-open on Monday 30th November 2020. The decision to close the academy has been made in conjunction with Dudley Academies Trust Board of Trustees. On Monday 30th November 2020, we will not, unfortunately have full staffing levels in place. Therefore, we will not be able to accommodate all year groups. We will only be able to welcome back Years 7, 8 and 11. Please read the Principal’s letter to parents and carers to find out more. Thank you for your ongoing support at this time.
