Admissions to primary school are commonly referred to as:
We hold open days and offer guided tours of our school for parents, carers and children who are considering applying for a place here. These give you the opportunity to meet the staff, see the facilities and generally get a feel for what we have to offer. Please note that these visits are not a compulsory part of the admissions process and will not affect decisions on whether a place can be offered at our school.
For nursery admissions, please see our Nursery pages.
Admissions to St James are coordinated by Devon County Council. For more information and advice, please visit the Devon County Council School Admissions web pages. Applications for a place at the school must be made via Devon County Council (and not via the school although you are very welcome to talk to us first!).
Admission Policy consultation has now been completed. Please see Admissions Policy below.
