As a through school, we have the unique opportunity to monitor and support the progress of every pupil according to their strengths and abilities at each key stage.

Offering experiences that are meaningful and child-centred is our focus, whether that be exploring the grounds during Nature and Mindfulness Walks in Early Years lessons, during Forest School sessions in Infants and Juniors, participating in the popular Duke of Edinburgh scheme, or even working alongside teaching specialists during Activity Weeks.  

A broad and balanced co-curricular programme develops social skills, nurtures a willingness to take risks, boosts confidence and enhances the development of leadership skills whilst also providing inspirational role models in our senior girls for the younger children in our community, continuously preparing our pupils for a life after St Nicholas’.

Forest School has become a vital part of our co-curricular programme at St Nicholas’.  Allowing children the freedom to take ownership of their own learning and activities in our beautiful woodland setting, provides countless benefits including exploration, discovery, creativity and resilience.  Forest School sessions significantly enhance the enjoyment of school life for our Nursery, Infant and Junior children.
