We all learn best when we are happy and supported, challenged and encouraged. At James Bateman we strive to make sure learning is enriching and enjoyable. We work with every pupil to nurture their individual abilities and to equip them for success, both academically and in terms of life skills.

The atmosphere at James Bateman is very special and we welcome visits to our school so that you can experience it for yourself.

We are consistently ranked as one of the highest performing middle schools in the county. High academic standards are achieved within a caring and supportive school community. Our focus is on excellence in all that we do. Our school community of pupils, parents, staff and governors all work together to provide an engaging learning environment that ensures each pupil fulfils their potential.
