School: St James Prep
St James is a
multi-cultural independent school with a very distinctive ethos
based on the philosophy of Advaita Vedanta. It is a philosophy
of unity where the essence of every child is recognised and
acknowledged as divine and perfect. We all have different
individual characteristics, but behind these differences, we
share the same divine nature which is full of happiness,
vitality and knowledge.
This ethos makes for a school where divisions and separations of
culture and social background are easily transcended.
In line with our philosophy, the school is open to children of
all faiths, and of none. Our assemblies contain readings and
prayers from a variety of western and eastern sources which
emphasise the unifying principles common to all the great faiths
and teachings of the world.
Please feel welcome to visit us and experience for yourself a
school where children are natural, happy, well nourished and
