Leeds has produced a You Tube video about applying for a school place.


St James’ CE Primary is a happy and healthy place to achieve and believe.

‘Leaders value and believe in each and every member of this community and the nurturing support they provide for individual parents, pupils and staff is transformational.’ (SIAMS inspection, 2022).

We’re a well-loved little school in the heart of Wetherby. Ofsted (2019) judge us to be a good school: ‘The quality of teaching is good across all year groups, including the early years. Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Pupils work hard, concentrate well and enjoy learning. There are good relationships between staff and pupils.’
