St. Nicholas School is an independent preparatory school with a family feel.
We specialize in providing a high quality academic learning in a caring, values based environment, utilizing an engaging curriculum.
If you were to ask a parent why they chose us for their child’s education, they would tell you that pupils here seem particularly happy and balanced, that we succeed in combining academic excellence with a range of opportunities beyond the classroom and provide excellent pastoral care.
The spirit of St. Nicholas is a passion for learning and care. Pupils are enabled to strive for excellence by developing their academic, musical, sporting, artistic and personal potential individually and within the community.
At our school, children are encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility and learn to play a worthwhile and meaningful role in the life of the community. Children may begin our Nursery at three years old, moving into the Infant Department between the ages of four to five years. The Junior Department caters for children of seven years old and above.
Our school offers a real alternative to parents seeking an independent, quality, all-round, caring and traditional education for their children
Our school community is made up of many talented individuals who contribute to ensuring that our students are given every opportunity to develop as responsible citizens in a supportive and stimulating educational environment .
