St. Nic's latest inspection was on 16 May 2023

We are delighted to announce that:

"St Nicolas' CofE VA School, Downderry continues to be a good school. There is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a graded (section 5) inspection now. The school's next inspection will be a graded inspection."

What is it like to attend this school? 

"Pupils have a love of learning at this school. They experience broad and rich opportunities to develop their own individual character. Pupils proudly give many examples of how their experiences bring to life the school’s motto, ‘Where learning becomes an adventure’. These experiences are exceptional and make the most of the school’s unique location. Pupils and parents value the opportunities to explore, take risks and be adventurous. These activities help to prepare them for future life."
