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.
Our Missions and Aims
We provide a nurturing, caring social environment, based on family values, in which the views of all members are heard, valued and respected. Students are supported in their development and in turn support one another.
We develop and deliver an exciting curriculum, built to provide pupils with the skills and knowledge that they need to succeed beyond our School and beyond the classroom, providing real world applications for their learning. Our small class sizes help our teachers to tailor this curriculum to each child specific learning style and need, allowing us to support and extend in each lesson.
We ensure that all pupils are given the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways, placing a high emphasis on the development of life skills such as organization, confidence and leadership, truly preparing pupils for the challenges that they will face in the future.
We recognise the strengths we have when we join together as a School community, and also celebrate each other’s differences that make each of us important as an individual. We respect what makes us individuals and embrace opportunities for collaboration.
We value the opportunity to contribute to the wider world; working hard with families to build a strong School community, taking an active role in our local community, and teaching children the role we have as part of a global community.
