Year 6 teaching

Our Junior School pupils study a wide range of subjects, many of which, including French, Spanish, Mandarin, ICT, Drama, Art, Music and Sport are taught by specialist teachers.

Our small class sizes enable form tutors to get to know each girl as an individual which we feel is highly important.

The girls who attend St Nicholas’ Junior School love to learn and socialise, and our inspiring, innovative teachers foster in them a lifelong love of learning.

Girls are based with their form teacher in their form room for some of the day but will visit specialist teachers for other lessons.  Each day begins and ends with the form teacher in the form room. This time is used partly for administration and partly for sharing concerns or triumphs on an informal basis.

Each girl has a school planner in which she will write her homework and any general reminders. This provides a useful contact with parents and can be used to send messages to and from home. Please check it regularly, sign it weekly and make sure that your daughter brings it to school with her every day. Girls are expected to come into school independently and to take responsibility for their own possessions.

Form teachers are always happy to speak to parents with concerns. Brief conversations can sometimes be had by arrangement at the beginning or end of the day.

Our Junior pupils also take part in a number of activities including Forest School, sporting fixtures and many lunch and after school clubs as part of St Nicholas' School co-curricular programme.
