St James Senior Boys’ School in Ashford in the heart of Surrey, offers a distinctive education for boys aged 11 to 18. St James is a dynamic school, leading the way in the education of the whole person with a strong philosophically based ethos, valuing stillness and meditation balanced with a strong academic focus.
The philosophy behind the St James ethos is the Philosophy of Unity. This philosophy emphasises the practice of self-awareness and the unity of all humanity.

Boys and staff are provided with the opportunity to connect with the peace and stillness behind all movement and encouraged to utilise this practice in their daily life.
