St James' currently has approximately 160 pupils in Years R to 6, catering for pupils aged 4 to 11 years mostly living in or close to the village of Biddenham.

The school was founded to provide education according to the 'principles and practices of the Church of England'. We are proud to be a Church School and seek to serve our local community in the best way possible. We aim to preserve and develop our religious and spiritual character in partnership with our local community, St James’ Church and the Diocese of St Albans. 

In our Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools (SIAMS) that took place in July 2017 we were judged to be a 'good' Church of England school.


St James’ is a Church of England school with a strong Christian ethos, welcoming children of all faiths and cultures.
