Welcome to St James' Anglican School
St James’ Anglican School is a school of the Anglican Schools Commission (Inc.) (ASC) situated on 10 hectares of land on the corner of Marmion Avenue and Graceful Boulevard in the new northern beaches suburb of Alkimos, 40 kilometres from the Perth CBD. Alkimos is named after the shipwreck of the Greek freighter Alkimos, which ran aground in 1963 on the coast west of the current location of the School of St James'. The wreck lies a few hundred metres off shore and has slowly been rusting away to the point where only a small section of the hull remains.
St James’ Anglican School is a co-educational, independent day school. Currently the School caters for Kindergarten to Year 8 with Year 9 classes being introduced in 2018. By 2021 the School will offer all year levels from Kindergarten to Year 12. At full enrolment, the School will cater for approximately 1100 students.
St James’ will aim to provide excellent opportunities in sport, music, drama, arts, languages and cultural pursuits within and beyond the School curriculum.
Stage 3 Is Coming!
The final approval for the enormous Stage 3 Senior School building has created a great deal of excitement at St James’. The project should commence in the coming months and will be complete before the end of 2018. This means our students will be moving in to three new buildings as we receive our first Year 10 students.
We will be building on several fronts, but have planned these structures in a way that there will be little impact on our current site. The main building, the Stage 3 two storey block will contain state of the art facilities that align with modern evidence-based teaching concepts. Some of the features of this building are:
- Specialised Art Room with Kiln
- Information Technology Room- Computers, books, study spaces, tutorial room
- Performing Arts Room- Music, Drama
- Administration area with parent and student reception
- 2 Maths Rooms
- 2 Humanities Rooms
- 2 English Rooms
- 1 Japanese Room
- 1 PE and Fitness Room
- Student Common Room
- 3 Meeting Rooms
- Abseil Tower and Climbing Wall
- 2 Large Collaborative spaces
The second construction will be the first stage of Design Technology. The focus here will be on Woodwork, Plastics, Electronics and possibly Textiles.
The third development will commence after the Stage 3 Building to convert the existing Stage 1B Block into specialised Science rooms. This will include a section for Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M).
The fourth area to be developed will be some hardcourts for the Senior School. This part of the project may emerge in several forms, which will become concrete during 2018.
This build phase will complete most of the main structures to see us through until around 2020. Depending on student numbers, this may trigger the final buildings to help complete the campus.
These are exciting times ahead with planning and development designed to stay ahead of our students as they progress towards an amazing milestone; our first Year 12 graduates in 2021!
