School House System

There are four houses:

Blue = Sapphire
Green = Emerald 
Red = Ruby
Yellow = Amber

Children are put into a house when they enter School.


We now have a tradition of selecting the top performing children in Year 6 to become Prefects. Not all children become Prefects, only those who have shown amongst other traits:

  • Very good attitude to learning and school 
  • Exceptional behaviour
  • Compassion to others
  • The ability to achieve above and beyond what is expected of them

As part of the Prefect structure we also have Head and Deputy Head Boys and Girls. 

These are children chosen by the members of staff at St James’ who go beyond the requirements stated previously and have been able to maintain these during their time at school.
