St James School Durban offers a holistic education to pupils from Grade R – Grade 7. We are a co-ed school in Greyville, Durban.
We take the pastoral care of our pupils seriously, as we believe that a happy child is a child who is open to new experiences. We work very closely with our parents to ensure that we meet the needs of all our pupils. We have one class per grade.
Teachers are able to teach and encourage learning because of the manageable classes. We do not have Boarding Facilities.
Our Aftercare runs from straight after school to either 16:00 or 17:00.
Academic Support lessons are offered by the teachers as the need arises, and our Librarian assists the Junior Primary Phase with one-on-one reading sessions. It is, however, sometimes necessary to refer our pupils to outside Academic Support Programmes as we do not have an LSEN Class as of yet.
Parents and teachers work closely together; especially when it comes to having a child assessed by Children’s Centres with Educational Psychologists to explore possible learning barriers.
