"We would like to thank the children. They are a credit to St James'. Their politeness and behaviour were excellent."
The Petts Wood Ladies Club

"Please do pass on my appreciation to the School Choir as they sang beautifully and the feedback I received from the Dementia Cafe guests was so positive - they certainly helped to brighten many people's day."
The Bromley Dementia Support Hub

"Lunch with the children was delightful. They had very good table manners and there was a calm and respectful atmosphere in the dining area."

"Very good communication. The school always keeps us well informed. I could not be happier."

“My family has benefitted hugely from the After School Club for the entire time they have been at St James’. I was just reflecting today on what a blessing it has been – and how much my children have gained from it. It’s not just a safe environment for them to wait for their parents. It’s so much more. 

They get a chance to socialise with other adults, and with children of all ages.  They get a chance to expand their friendship groups, and develop their character – caring for younger children, including them in play, chatting over breakfast etc.  They also really enjoy the games and activities – my boys loved the crispy cake making today, but also love playing games like dodge-ball indoors on a rainy day.  

Needless to say screen time is also popular, but I really appreciate the focus on giving some time for homework too. I would not hesitate to recommend the club to other parents, and cannot thank the staff enough for everything they do.  Thanks again for this brilliant addition to the school.”

“St James' is a terrific local school which I greatly enjoyed visiting.”
Jo Johnson MP
