Why should you choose our school?
The advantages of independent education are many and wide reaching. The class-sizes and exam successes of pupils are well documented. Perhaps less widely known; however, are the benefits of ethos, tradition, culture and pastoral care enjoyed from pre-prep onwards, which help develop well-rounded young individuals prepared for the life ahead.
Our school is unique in character: its small, friendly atmosphere, with a focus upon community and values-based care.
Our teachers are outstanding and caring. They care for the individual and stimulate the children's curiosity, to nurture their intellectual ability, with our curriculum. All classes are provided with in-class co-teacher support.
Your children can thrive in our ‘ethos’ – our philosophy, values and vision are a perfect match for your child. They will thrive educationally, socially and emotionally.
We have made our Mission and Beliefs central to everything we do. We are dedicated to learning and committed to excellence.
St. Nicholas School, an ISA-accredited school, provides a quality Nursery and Preparatory education within a positive culture of excellence and a caring family community.
We believe that our school provides a nurturing, caring social environment, based on family values, in which the views of all members are heard and respected and in which students are supported in their development. We want our students to experience and develop skills in collaboration and co-operative working and have opportunities to develop life skills, organisation and confidence.
We believe that our students’ success and happiness in school depends upon us working in close partnership with families and we communicate regularly and personally, with our community to support each other.
St. Nicholas is an academic school that will provide students with a well-rounded, challenging, and stimulating education. Opportunities in other areas such as The Arts, ICT and in Physical Education, are also incorporated to enable students to discover abilities.
Our school utilises the curriculum to teach critical and analytical skills, personal development and oral and written communication skills.
Our committed teachers understand that students achieve at their best levels when they are encouraged to do their best, take ownership for their learning, are held accountable, and their achievements are celebrated.
