Welcome

At St Nicholas' School, everyone is valued, everyone is someone.

St Nicholas’ is a unique all-through school where children have the chance to grow up at their own pace, and where they can let their talents and imagination run free.  At every stage of their educational journey, pupils flourish.  It is a privilege to be the Headmistress of such an energetic and talented school community.

We have a long history of educating boys and girls together in Branksomewood, our Nursery and Infant School, and girls all the way through to 16 in Redfields House, our Junior and Senior School.  Few schools offer the opportunity to get to know pupils so well.  It is little wonder that they achieve so highly academically; nurtured and supported as they are throughout their education.  Our GCSE results rank amongst the best nationally and if you visit us you’ll see why.

An education at St Nicholas’ equals a happy childhood.  I look forward to showing you exactly what this looks like.

Headmistress, Dr. Olwen Wright

COME AND SEE US

We believe the best way to understand the ethos and to get a feel for St Nicholas' School is to visit in person. 

LIFE IN NURSERY

Our Nursery, situated within Branksomewood, offers a rich, stimulating, and secure learning environment for children aged from 2 years and 9 months.  We offer both indoor and outdoor learning, encouraging children to explore their curiosity whilst nurturing their enthusiasm.  Our vision is for each child to be the best that they can be, to become happy, confident learners, keen to explore and try out new things.

LIFE IN INFANTS

Branksomewood is home to our Infants, featuring a natural wood construction and a wonderful airy atmosphere that provides light and space for our younger children. With an adventure playground set in the woods, a sand pit and mud kitchen play area, Forest School and a large hall fitted with PE equipment, it is no wonder the children are so happy.

LIFE IN JUNIORS

Redfields House, the home of our Junior School, is the beautifully decorative main building with high ceilings and a wooden staircase that takes centre stage.  Juniors have their own Library, I.T suite and Science Lab.

LIFE IN SENIORS

Our Senior School is located in a separate building at the far end of Redfield House along with form rooms, science laboratories and the fantastic Pritchard Hall and Drama Studio. Pupils also have access to our open-plan Senior Library and I.T suite and our Sports Hall. Our wonderful sporting facilities, including our multi-use area, enable a number of sports to be played, such as volleyball, basketball, netball, football and cricket.
