St Nicholas’ School is a small, independent day school for girls aged 3–16 and boys aged 3–7 years.
Founded by two women in 1935 in order to educate the children of serviceman who were at war, you will see when you visit, the school has not lost any part of the motto 'Confirma Domine Serviendo'. We interpret this as strengthening our commitment to serving others.
St Nicholas, the patron saint and protector of children and sailors, is why there is a long boat on our crest. Over the centuries, St Nicholas (known to children now as Father Christmas) slowly evolved into a jolly, magical being who delighted in bringing children all over the world free gifts for their good behaviour on one special night.
St Nicholas' School was first located in Branksomewood Road, Fleet, but moved to Redfields House, Church Crookham in 1996. Redfields House, a Victorian Mansion, is set in over 30 acres of glorious parkland and playing fields and all pupils get to use the outdoor facilities as often as they can.
Branksomewood, the Nursery and Infant department, is built of natural wood with a wonderful, airy atmosphere. This building gives light and space to our younger children, creating a calming environment in which they thrive. With an adventure playground set in the woods, a large hall fitted with PE equipment overlooking the grounds, and our experienced teaching staff, it is no wonder the children are so happy.
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.
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.
