The transition of Pre-Prep children and their families to St James is supported through the following processes

  • Principal tours
  • Parent Orientation Evenings
  • Orientation Mornings

At the beginning of each year St James holds a “Meet the Teacher" open morning. This occurs the day before the start of the school year. It involves the children and their families visiting the school to meet their new teacher and bring in all their school supplies. This helps the children to settle into their new environment and allows the start of school to run smoothly.

St James supports the orientation programmes of the local secondary schools. Students with complex learning needs are provided with additional support as they transition from primary to secondary school.​
