Close links exist between the school and St. James' Church which are valued and continue to develop. Christmas, Easter and a leavers' services are held in the church to which parents are invited. The vicar or curate visits the school each week to lead school assemblies. Our status as a Church Controlled School allows representatives of the Church places on the Governing Body. The Vicar of St. James Church, or his representative, is an ex- officio member.
