WORKING AT ST JAMES 

St James is a thriving, diverse and proud community. As an inclusive and committed team we are positively and diligently raising standards.  Our aim is for students to achieve excellent outcomes, move onto exciting post-16 activities and most importantly to gain a range of skills and experiences which enable them to be happy and successful in the future.

We are an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school of 840 students situated in the East of Exeter on a relatively new, purpose-built site which offers excellent facilities for all our departments.

We are a school with very high expectations of, and for, our students; only their best is good enough. We provide students with opportunities to shine through excellent teaching and innovative practice, a vibrant extra-curricular provision and a curriculum that challenges and inspires from the start of year 7 and is increasingly personalised as students move up through the school.

Our staff are incredibly committed and passionate about all that they do and are rewarded with bespoke CPD provision, in-house career progression opportunities and regular staff-wellbeing events.  Ofsted judged us to be good in our last inspection in March 2015, but clearly acknowledged that our outcomes in Maths and English were Outstanding and that we were on a clear trajectory to achieve Outstanding in the near future.

Our 2016 results are the best in our history, with nearly 8 out of 10 students achieving at least a C in both English and Maths (77% – the ‘Basics’), 71% achieving at least five A*-C GCSEs including English & Maths; and 43% achieving the E Baccalaureate50% of students achieved at least one A/A* and 20% of all grades were A/A*.   These results saw us placed in the top ten schools in Devon as published in The Times on Friday 20 January 2017.

We are one of the highest performing schools in the area because we believe that students achieve excellent outcomes as a result of five years at a school where they are happy and engaged at all times; where they are challenged from day one and are consistently supported to be the best they can be.

The Governing Body:

The Local Governing Body operates with full delegated authority from the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust and is directly accountable to the Trust.   The governors understand well their statutory duties to hold leaders to account as well as setting the strategic direction of the academy and ensuring the academy has a sound financial footing.  Their commitment is absolute, believing in social justice they bring a rich background of experience beyond education. They are led by a chair determined for the academy to be a first choice for parents and where every child is given the opportunity to fulfil their potential.                          

We are looking to appoint outstanding, passionate and committed practitioners who want to join our family of schools as we enter the next phase of our development  (for more information on the Ted Wragg Trust please visit http://www.tedwraggtrust.co.uk/.
