Altham St. James’- Our Christian Vision

Living our lives as Jesus wants us to

Our children will learn to love themselves and to embrace the differences in modern society. Developing the whole child is extremely important to us. We will endeavour to live out the teaching: “Love each other as I have loved you.”  John 15:12

Altham St James’ is a small, church school much like a family, with a child-centred approach. We work closely with family, friends and members of the church community to embed the love of God through living and learning together. We want our children to be the best they can be and believe they can make a difference because we have faith that: “Everything is possible with God.” Matthew 19:26

It is our intent that children will develop a love of learning through exciting, challenging and stimulating experiences enriched by visits and visitors.

It is our mission to:

  • Be the best that we can be
  • Respect the world and everyone in it
  • Love, forgive and reconcile
