Welcome to St Nicolas!
Thank you for visiting our new 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.
Here at St Nicolas we believe that all our children should feel confident in themselves as individuals, equipped with a wide range of skills that allows them to approach to all areas of life and learning with confidence and a sense of excitement. Learning to apply knowledge, understanding and skills to any situation, learning to be flexible and adaptable, is learning for living.
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.
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.
