In order to ease the transition of pupils from their primary schools into high school, pupils from our feeder primary schools are visited by various members of St James’ community throughout Year 6. We also plan a number of additional activities and events each year.
With the ongoing restrictions caused by Covid-19, the planning for our 2020 cohort has been much more challenging, however we will use this page to inform you of the steps we are taking to ensure that your introduction to St James’ will be as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
As we look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 in September, we have created some activities to give you a taste of the different subjects you will be learning at St James’ and to help prepare you for work in Year 7. You can choose which activities you wish to complete and then you can send them in to school via our dedicated email address email@example.com so that we can showcase them on our website and Twitter page. Please add your first name and Primary School to anything you send in. Alternatively, you can post them into school
- Food and Nutrition
- PE 4 Week Challenge
- PE Fact File Challenge
- PE Circuit training
- PE Sports Quiz
We are thrilled to be able to offer every new Year 7 child who starts with us in September 2020 with the opportunity to select a free book of their choice.
We offer many exciting musical opportunities for you son/daughter at St James’, through our Key Stage 3 Music lessons that are provided to all pupils, extracurricular clubs and instrumental tutors from Stockport Music Service.

We are delighted to share our short video that has been made by our friends at outworkstudio.com, with the help of our staff and pupils. It is designed to give you a little insight into the values and ethos that make St James’ so special. We hope the video provides a taste of what you can expect when you join our school family.
