“At St James Academy, we are determined to become a centre of excellence for young people who live in central Dudley.
“The philosophy is simple: we will ensure the success of all our learners through outstanding teaching and positive behaviour. Two successive years of improved GCSE results show that we are on the right path.
“I like to know the names and personalities of all our young people in the academy, and St James is small enough to do that. There is a strong caring ethos here, which ensures high levels of support for students and creates an atmosphere of mutual respect throughout the academy.
“That is not to say that we aren’t strict on discipline, but we are also passionate about rewarding learners who make an extra effort, show kindness, display great teamwork or achieve beyond expectations.
“One of the things that marks us out is our Year 7 Literacy for Life programme, which acts as a bridge between the primary and secondary school systems, helping your child to make a great start in secondary education and a great start in life.
“Our learners are challenged to extend their interests through a wide programme of extra-curricular activities, sports team, trips and visits. We have large playing fields and excellent facilities for sport, drama and a host of other activities.
“Our careers programme helps our young people to focus on their futures and motivates them to work hard and develop their self-confidence.
“We encourage every learner to become a student leader, contribute to charity and awareness initiatives, participate in debating and reciting competitions and join in with science projects and business presentations.
“St James Academy makes a real difference to young people and is a great place to be. Please take a look at what we have to offer.”
