Welcome to St Nicolas!
Thank you for visiting our website. Whether you are an existing, past or prospective member of our school community, we hope you will find the information that you are looking for.
As the presenters of CBBC's Wild show said, 'the children at St Nicolas are amazing.' We believe that all our children gain the confidence in themselves as individuals and are equipped with a wide range of skills that allows them to approach all areas of life and learning with confidence and a sense of excitement.
Whilst we take pride in our academic standards and achievements, we also believe that helping and respecting each other, co-operating and sharing, and encouraging a sense of community are essential elements of a child’s education. Here at Downderry we enable children to develop safe and healthy lifestyles, commitment and a sense of responsibility, and knowledge and understanding that will enable them to succeed in life. Our aim is to send young people out into the wider world who are caring, competent, worthy of respect and who see learning as an adventure.
In 2013, the school became part of a Multi-Academy Trust, with five other church schools. The school now has a strong working relationship with our partner schools, which is already benefiting the children and the standards they achieve. The Academy website can be accessed by here.
We welcome visits from prospective parents and pupils and know that you will soon see why learning at St Nicolas is such a positive and memorable experience.
