Welcome to Altham St James’ website

We hope it shows you a little bit about what our school is like. And if you already know the school, gives you a bit of information about what’s going on. Altham St James’ is a very small school, much ‘like a family’, commented one parent to OFSTED recently.

As a family we know one another and care for one another very much, and as a family we see God as our Father, because we are a faith-based school. Although we strive for good academic results, we are well aware that academic ability is not the be-all-and-end-all. Children have many different interests, skills and abilities and huge potential, and we work hard to make the education we offer as broad as possible to meet this range.

Please look around the site – if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. You would also be most welcome to look around the school “in real life” rather than online. Please phone for an appointment and we will do our very best to make you welcome. Meanwhile, enjoy clicking and browsing.
