St Nicholas School News

We are looking forward to the end of term next week but it is bittersweet as many leaver's events are happening. This week the Yr 6 children performed 'Shakespeare Rocks' to parents and the whole school. They sang and acted brilliantly!


They also took part in their traditional Leaver's Mass - always an emotional occasion. They all spoke about special memories they had of being at St Nicholas and signed their names on class cakes which were shared afterwards. Fr Jonathan joined us to officiate at this mass.


We look forward to welcoming many new families to St Nicholas in September. If you wish to find out more about joining our school please contact
