St James the Great Academy is situated in one of the most beautiful grounds to be found anywhere in Kent. The site was originally landscaped in the 17th century and was the parkland of Clare House. On the site there is a splendid lake and fine mature trees with an abundance of wild life including nesting water birds.

Within the village there is Bradbourne House and the horticultural research station. The parish church of St James the Great and houses of historical and architectural interest, including the mill buildings, Tudor residences and the original Victorian school buildings.

In March 2014, St James the Great Academy was awarded the Investors in People Silver Award.

St James the Great Academy was fast-tracked to become part of the AET on 1st April 2012. We are a one form entry primary school with nursery and serve the most deprived area in the Tonbridge and Malling District in Kent. We have a new award-winning (Kent Design Awards) building and are well-resourced. Our academy strapline “to make our best better” is evident through the dedication and commitment of all staff in supporting learning throughout the school. Personalised learning is at the core of our academy and thus a variety of intervention groups encourages all children to achieve. The academy is recognised as being forward thinking and child-centred and we are working towards achieving 'good' at our next Ofsted inspection.
