  • St James Academy appoints new Principal

    Published 29/10/19

    St James Academy is delighted to announce that Ian Moore has been appointed as the school’s new Principal. 

    Now under new leadership, with support from staff and our trust sponsor Dudley Academies Trust - the school is undergoing a period of transformation.

    Mr Moore has been a key member of the school staff since 2012 when he joined as Deputy Head, later becoming Vice Principal and then, in January 2019, Acting Principal.

    His leadership team and the teaching staff at St James helped the academy to improve both attainment and progress significantly in 2019, with some key departments achieving 100% pass rates.

    Mr Moore himself said, “I feel both proud and privileged to be appointed as Principal at St James Academy. Having grown up in the Dudley area, it is great to be able to work in my local community.

    A huge welcome back to all our students after the summer break.

    • We've welcomed 180 new students into our Year 7 group during the first few weeks of the new term. 
    • We've had I.T. systems, site and estates work completed during the summer months - from over 30 new computers installed in our refurbished I.T. suite to electrical work and upgrades across the school.
    • We've had some staff bid us farewell and some new staff start with us.
    • The seating in our new lecture theatre is being installed this week.

    Phew! - A busy first few weeks for students and staff.

    We hope our new Year 7s had a great first couple of weeks, have started to settle into school life at St James and to continue their educational journey they have started with us here.
