At St Nicholas’ our focus is always to help nurture and develop a holistic education for every child. We relish the challenge of helping pupils to develop in all areas, taking learning out of the normal classroom paradigm, ensuring that we are truly a Preparatory School in nature as well as by name. Supporting pupils to refine strengths and develop new ones by tackling new challenges is an essential element of life at our School, and we achieve this through the support of the whole community, ensuring that we are able to provide an education that prepares pupils for the challenges of the modern world.

There are many reasons that make St Nicholas’ special, as outlined here. We’re very proud to offer an innovative curriculum alongside a focus on strong personal development. Our pupils themselves had input into our new Core Values, and these attributes help us to support each child throughout their time with the School. We recognise the importance of combining a focus on academic success with developing skills for the real world, and as such, staying true to our name as a Preparatory School supporting future success at Senior School and beyond.
