Welcome to St Clement & St James

SCSJ Ofsted report breakdown


Your local community church school


St Clement & St James was founded (originally as two separate schools) in the 1860s to serve the poor communities around the two school buildings, and we remain committed to serving our local children. We are proud to be part of this vibrant area and an important part of the community. We serve five parishes (St Clement and St James, St Helen’s, All Saints, St Peter’s, St John’s) and have especially strong links with St Clement and St James. 


What makes us so special?

  • We are one of the only small schools in the Holland Park area (one form entry) which means staff have time to get to know children and families

  • We have just opened our brand new early years ‘Owlet’s’ centre which has wonderful facilities for 3-5 year olds

  • We are a church school with strong Christian values of friendship, thankfulness, forgiveness and compassion

  • We have a broad curriculum and love the arts.  We have set up the Pottery Lane Arts Centre on the school site with professional artists who work with our staff and children

  • We have a caring and supportive staff team who work closely with children and families to ensure each child is calm and ready for learning.  We have carefully tailored support for any child who needs a little extra encouragement and attention eg Special Needs coordinator, learning mentors, art therapy, Place to be (counselling), West London Zone, and speech therapy

  • We have strong church links.  Reverend Gareth, our priest in charge and his dog Libby, is very involved in the life of the school.

  • We are federated with St Thomas’ CE Primary School (Ofsted Outstanding) which means we can share resources to ensure we have strong teaching in both schools
