St James Alternative School, originally based in The New Era Centre, has been in situ since 2009 and now resides in its own building in Burnley.

This campus is designed to accommodate pupils from KS1 – KS4, supporting Primary & Secondary pupils, with a maximum of 65 pupils and is for those that require short term intervention, respite or support until a positive transition back into mainstream or onto special school, with the support of an EHC (Education Health Care) plan. This campus also specialises in gathering assessment data to support the application of a EHC plan.

TAS St James has a strong focus on outdoor learning, adventurous activities and public services.
