We are incredibly proud of all that we do at St Nicholas’, and we feel we have an entirely unique School with many positives that help inspire our pupils every day. Whilst we have tried to outline some of the reasons that make us special below, the best way to observe this is to come and visit us and experience the School during a tour.
– Independent Learning:
Our specially designed curriculum focuses on important life skills that operate across subjects and beyond the classroom, giving pupils choice in what and how they study, and extending their personal and academic development.
– Our new Core Values:
Developed by our children, the School has recently introduced new ‘Core Values’ which help to define what a St Nicholas’ pupil should be like. These are Independent, Compassionate, Respectful, Resilient, Ambitious, Collaborative and Responsible.
– Small class sizes:
Staff are able to provide individualised input and support due to our class sizes, where each child receives focused time with staff to improve their understanding and extend their ability.
– iPads in the classroom:
Staff are undergoing Apple Teacher Training and the curriculum is incorporating a wide range of apps, covering movie making, creating books and coding games.
– Strong community setting:
The size of our School means that each child and each member of staff knows every member of our community. Pupils can be trusted to help each other, and our parent body is wonderfully supportive.
