Altham St James CE Primary School is an Aided School provided by the Church of England Trustees, originally to admit children from the village and outlying areas.

The present school is a stone building dating back to early Victorian times, which has been adapted and modernised over the years (with, most recently, the redevelopment of a third classroom in 2016).  There are three classrooms and a hall – one classroom houses the infant class, the second and third classrooms house the junior class and the hall is used for worship, PE and dining.

Outside the school we have a recently improved EYFS playground (improved in September 2017), two hard surface yards, an adventure playground, games field and green area, some of which is allowed to grow wild as an environmental area.

The connection with the church is maintained by our frequent visits to Church, and the visits of clergy into school on a weekly basis, and we are also proud to be part of the community of the village of Altham, with the school being used for various village functions. Many of the villagers and parishioners take a special interest in the life of Altham St James CE Primary School.

The Church has seen education as one of its Primary roles throughout its long history. It can be said that The Church has been involved in education in Altham for around a thousand years.

We aim to continue this tradition by providing the highest possible modern standards of education in a Christian environment with worship at the centre of its daily life, and a strong commitment to family values and morals.
