Open Evening - Years 5 & 6

Thursday 6th October from 4pm to 7pm.

Sir Jim’s is a unique school, greatly valued by its community. We may be a small school but we have great ambition and high aspirations for our students . Our staff and parents/carers are committed to working together to make sure our young people's dreams come true.

Sir Jim’s was rated Good in 2016 with many excellent features noted by  Ofsted.  Since then we have taken a number of initiatives to further improve the school bringing us closer to being judged Outstanding in  all areas.

Our school is in the top 15 per cent in England for Value-Added GCSE results 2015 and has a high Progress 8 score; this means high quality  of teaching and effective learning is commonplace across the school.   We are delighted to report that our provisional 2016 results are higher than 2015!  These results will be published 13 October  by The Department for Education:


Parents/carers tell us they love the atmosphere and often comment that the school is a welcoming and vibrant place; they also value the fact we are a small school with an inclusive ethos.  One parent recently said  “Parents/carers in the know have known for several years that this school is a little bit of magic”.

Families and prospective students are warmly invited to visit us on Thursday 6th October.  The evening will commence at 4.00pm with an address in the main hall by Mr Lawrence, the Headteacher, assisted by Mr Carrington, Deputy Headteacher.
