St Nicholas School reflects the teachings and values of the Catholic Faith that is central in our daily lives. We recognise that everyone is created in the image and likeness of God and that everything is possible through Christ. We grow and learn spiritually, intellectually, physically and emotionally by being Christ like to others.

All members of our community are valued and respected. We embrace a spirit of communication and co-operation, openness and supportiveness. Each member is encouraged to achieve individual excellence in all areas.

We are a living and growing community, offering everyone the opportunity to fulfil their potential, educating the whole person in a broad and balanced way, as we are all unique individuals in the eyes of Christ.

We present, live and celebrate the Christian vision.

The School will aim to develop lively and enquiring minds, develop children’s literacy and numeracy, maintain their interest in learning with enriching and stimulating experiences through physical activities, the creative arts and first hand experiences.

During their years at school, children will be expected to develop their own individual talents, will be able to read, write, speak well and enjoy books both at home and in school. The children will be encouraged to develop skills to ensure a good understanding of maths and science. We also aim to actively promote breadth and balance throughout the whole curriculum stimulating thought and discussion in enquiry based subjects.

Children will be expected to develop the capacity to work on their own and with others and to use their initiative in any situation. The School will endeavour to fully utilise the most valuable resources within the School by ensuring that the teaching and non-teaching staff use to the full their skills and talents to teach. It should provide a role model which inspires and encourages all to continue on their journey of faith.

The School will aim to establish a friendly, welcome and warm relationship with parents, parishes and community. The active involvement of clergy, parents, governors and the local community in the life of the School is of paramount importance if close, visible and genuine relationships are to be maintained.
