Anyone with current/ recent experience of this school? There are threads from 2012 which have been helpful I am thinking about it - late in the day I know - for DS to start in September in year 7. Registrar quite chipper about the waiting list prospects. Happy to pm if you would prefer that.
Have friends whose DD is in the Girls school in y9 and they are very positive about the philosophy, somewhat to their surprise.
My friend's son is in yr12. He moved there from a very academic prep where he was an unhappy 11 year old and has really thrived. She is very happy with his school experience, sport is good and he likes cadets. He & his friends do not go out drinking, he is polite and helpful around the house. Boys go on from St James to a wide range of universities depending on who they are.
