Back To School

For more details on how we are beginning our safe, orderly and effective transition back to school from 1 June, please read our Back to School Guide.


Welcome to St Nicholas Prep School! We offer a kind and nurturing environment where small class sizes and dedicated staff mean that each child in our community is valued as an individual and encouraged and inspired to achieve their very best. Situated in an enviable position opposite Hyde Park, our girls and boys enjoy spacious, airy classrooms and a large garden in which to learn and play and really enjoy their prep school years. I believe an excellent education builds pupils’ academic empowerment, promotes independent learning and develops that all important emotional resilience. I believe in celebrating effort and not just the final result so that our children can feel free to try new things without fear of failure.


St Nicholas offers a vibrant, exciting and engaging curriculum which thoroughly prepares our pupils for their 11+ entrance exams to central London senior schools and beyond. Our boys and girls are happy, confident, sociable and outward looking. I am proud of the breadth of our vibrant extra-curricular and clubs programme, which means that each child’s character is developed as they enjoy challenge beyond the classroom in sport, music and drama.

St Nicholas’ families come from all around the world. We enjoy celebrating our diversity which enriches our community of learning; our children truly are ‘global citizens’. But please, do come and visit and get to know us better. I look forward to meeting with you and exploring how we can work together to give your child the best possible start. Please contact our admissions department on 0207 591 2630 to make an appointment.
