At King James we have carefully planned and sequenced our curriculum and wider school experiences to ensure that our young people will develop their head, hearts and hands. Our holistic approach is as follows:


  • Head: an academic education developing in-depth knowledge of, for example, culture, design, history, maths and science.

  • Heart: a character education building resilience, kindness, tolerance and openness.

  • Hand: a 'can do' education that nurtures creativity and problem solving.
