St James School

St James School for girls and Boys is a private, fee paying Primary School catering for children from Grade 1 to Grade 7.  We are a member of ISASA and are situated in Greyville, Durban.


St James is affiliated with the School of Philosophy and we offer our pupils a spiritual, non-denominational education, focusing on producing responsible children who will grow up to become caring adults and serve their community wholeheartedly.  Much emphasis is placed on self-discipline and high academic standards are maintained through the use of fine materials which nourish the needs of the child.
