The Senior Department is located in a separate building at the far end of the school 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.
Redfields House, the home of our Junior Department, is the beautifully decorative main building with high ceilings and a wooden staircase that takes centre stage. Years 3 -6 form rooms are to be found here, and the Juniors have their own Library and I.T suite. Our Curriculum Support and ELSA Rooms are also located here, enabling easy assess for both Junior and Senior pupils.
'Branksomewood', the Nursery and Infant Department, features 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 large hall fitted with PE equipment, and our experienced teaching staff, it is no wonder the children are so happy.
At St Nicholas’, our co-curricular programme refers to the academic, personal, spiritual, creative and physical development of every pupil, alongside a sound understanding of community. A key component in the delivery of a well-rounded education, our co-curricular programme develops the whole child and affects almost all areas of school life.
At St Nicholas’ we pride ourselves on having outstanding pastoral care. We also involve the girls themselves in the school’s pastoral systems and our team of Prefects and ‘Big Sister’ mentors, made up of girls in the senior year-groups, provide a listening ear every day of the week.
Our remote learning platform, delivered using Microsoft 'Teams' has been a runaway success! Thanks to the hard work of all staff at St Nicholas', pupils in the Infant, Junior and Senior departments are thriving in their remote lessons.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
