The school offers a very wide range of opportunities for pupils to involve themselves in what are often known as 'extra-curricular' activities. The list is, in fact, too long for inclusion here. However, the following is a sample of what is on offer to St James' pupils:-
Annual ski trip, school orchestra; sports teams; retreats; community service; theatre visits; choir; German exchange holiday; dramatic & theatrical productions, international holidays, debating society, public speaking group, school council. When a new pupil joins St James', all of these opportunities are described in detail.
