As a newly converted Sponsored Academy, Southbroom St James is one of four schools in the Diocese of Salisbury who work in partnership as members of the Diocese Multi Academy Trust (DSAT). Distinctive Christian values underpin its commitment to providing quality learning opportunities for the children.

The occasion was an opportunity for visitors to meet Southbroom St James’ enthusiastic and experienced staff, supportive parents and many members of the recently elected advisory board providing governance to the school.

The afternoon started with tours of the school led by Year 6 children, tea and refreshments provided by parents and friends, and celebration worship. Each class contributed, including poetry recitals, displays of work, songs with part-singing, dancing and choral speaking.

Mrs Folker, the Interim Principal, said, "The event was a welcome opportunity to invite parents and visitors from the local community to share and celebrate the skills and talents of the children and have the opportunity to see St James with fresh eyes.

"The Academy is a rapidly improving junior school that has demonstrated significant improvement over the past 2 years. I owe a debt of gratitude to the staff for their commitment and resilience; The Mead Academy, The team at the Multi Academy Trust from the Salisbury Diocese, St Johns CE Primary Warminster and Amesbury CE Primary for their support and expertise; members of the governing body; parents; and above all - the children.

"As we look forward, we hold firm to the expectation that all children can achieve success in the various aspects of academy life that will enable them to aspire to become lifelong learners in their future years."
