Headteacher's Welcome

Striving to give your child the very best start in life is our absolute priority


Welcome to St. Nicholas Preparatory School where your child will have the very best start in life. Strong academic delivery is supported by a warmth and interest in you and your child which is translated into a sense of educational purpose in a happy and friendly environment. This is a vital time in your child’s development and we want to provide a momentum to their learning.

We have space, outdoors and indoors, which we fully utilise. A large garden to the rear, Hyde Park is immediately in front of us and we have direct access to world-renowned museums and colleges around the corner in Exhibition Road. In the school you will find large, bright and airy rooms which provide an excellent environment in which to challenge and stimulate all our children.

Our Montessori Nursery and Reception provide a stimulating environment nurturing independence of spirit which will serve your child well, not just now but for the rest of their life. In the mainstream of the school (Key Stages 1 & 2) teachers provide increased structure, expectation and challenge which sits readily with our belief that children learn best when they are happy, and therefore happy to learn. Education is far too exciting to be limited to a classroom and our curriculum stretches far and wide into clubs, societies and trips, ensuring we reach out to the whole person. Children leave St. Nicholas with confidence but also assured they have much in which to be confident, thus fully prepared for secondary school education.

Come and visit us and when you do I am confident you will choose St. Nicholas. I look forward to building a strong partnership with you through which your child will indeed experience the very best start in life.
