Since St James College opened in 1868, 'Jimmies' as the college is known, have welcomed students from an array of cultural, socio-economic and academic backgrounds. The school have established two funds to help students now, and in the future.
- The Faithful Friends Fund provides tuition bursaries today for students who otherwise are unable to attend St James College due to financial hardship and social disadvantage.
- The St James College Bursary Endowment Fund is a perpetual fund that provides a steady stream of funding for students who are experiencing severe financial hardship. This fund invests your gift in a bursary endowment and each year the interest generated provides bursaries for students, ensuring that poor families have access to Catholic education at Jimmies forever.
