On behalf of the Governing Body may I welcome you to Kettleshulme St James CE (VA) Primary School and assure you that you have made an excellent choice for your son or daughter.

We are all proud of the life at Kettleshulme St James, the positive learning environment in which the children work, the quality teaching from dedicated staff, the achievement of our sports teams, extra-curricular activities that we offer, our musical skills, the good behaviour of our children – it is quite a list.  We aim to help every child achieve their full potential during their time at Kettleshulme, encouraging them to live life in all its fullness. (John 10:10)

Parental involvement in all aspects of school life is greatly encouraged at Kettleshulme St JamesPrimary School, whether it is volunteering (or helping if you prefer) – when extra pairs of hands and eyes are needed for practical or extra-curricular activities, and to help out at our fabulous PTA events or  in running the PTA as a registered charity, and to stand when there is an election to our board of governors.

We have always enjoyed very close links with all the high schools children attend when they leave us.  We are a feeder school for Tytherington School and our children have also gone on to attend Poynton High School, Chapel-en-le-Frith High School, Hope Valley College, Buxton Community School, New Mills School, All Hallows Catholic College, The Kings’ School and Beech Hall in Macclesfield, and the grammar schools in Stockport and Manchester.  It is our aim to ensure a smooth transition for all our pupils when they move to the next phase of their education.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Kettleshulme St James Primary CE School.

Julia Carter

Chair of Governors
