We hope you find our website useful and informative and that it will inspire you to visit our school and meet our dedicated teachers and fantastic children.
Our principal aim at St Nicholas is to provide a caring and stimulating Christian environment where the children acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding to become active learners for life. They are encouraged to recognise the positive contribution that they and others are able to make to an ever changing diverse society.
The academy has strong links with the community taking part in competitions, festivals, charity fundraising events, community events and regularly visiting our local church. The church family are frequent visitors to our academy.
In May 2019 our school was rated ‘Good’ with outstanding features (OFSTED) and noted, we are “a place where children always come first and the school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development, welfare and behaviour is outstanding.” This helps us to provide a well-rounded curriculum where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure all children experience success and fulfil their potential.
Our website is only a glimpse of what we feel makes St Nicholas CE Primary distinctive. The best way for you to appreciate what we can offer your child is to experience our school first hand. We warmly welcome visits to the school from prospective parents and extend an invitation to parents, families and local residents to attend our community events and services.
