Facilities at our School
St. Nicholas Preparatory School is located in Kensington and has direct access to world-renowned museums and colleges just around the corner in Exhibition Road. Our school is based across two beautiful Grade II listed buildings (numbers 23 and 24 Princes Gate), where you will find large, bright and airy rooms that provide an excellent environment in which to challenge and stimulate all our children.
We have great space, outdoors and indoors, which pupils benefit from on a daily basis. A large, secure garden to the rear of the building is used by nursery and reception children for PE and Games lessons with a specialist PE teacher. It is also a playground and each day all children enjoy “garden time” in this wonderful outdoor space. Across the road in Hyde Park our older pupils can be found playing football and rounders, and children in Years 1-6 walk the short distance to Imperial College to use its large purpose built sports hall for gymnastics, netball and rock climbing. All children in Years 2-6 have a weekly swimming lesson in the Imperial College 25m indoor swimming pool.
St. Nicholas School is surrounded by a wealth of natural opportunity, being adjacent to the Royal Colleges of Art and Music, The Science Museum, the Natural History Museum, the V&A, the Royal Albert Hall and Albert Memorial, and the Hyde Park Tennis Club. All of these and more are visited by pupils on a regular basis.
Our premises are available for hire. Current users include:
- MCI who hold a range of Montessori events in the evenings and at weekends
