Picture 1

This year sees St James CE Primary School celebrate 150 years of education.  As part of this celebration, we are mounting an exhibition of children's work about various aspects of the last 150 years and also of archive material from the school.

 

The 150 Year Exhibition launches on Tuesday 28th June, when it will be opened during the morning by the Mayor of Northampton.  Former pupils and staff of St James School and anybody who may be interested are invited to join us to view the exhibition and reminisce  on Tuesday 28th from 2pm. Please let us know through the website, or ring the school office on 01604 751475 if you are able to come on Tuesday 28th.  The 150 Year Exhibition will be available to view during the School Fete on Friday 8th July, from 3.15pm.

 

We look forward to meeting  you, and sharing any memories or pictures that you may have.

 

There will be a 150 Year Celebration Party on Thursday 30th June for all our present pupils.
