It is my priority in the first instance to ensure that St Nicholas House provides the finest education for its pupils. We have an effective, dynamic and energetic team here at St Nicholas House who inspire a love of learning.
Having two children who have been pupils at Christ College has entirely convinced my husband and me that our decision to choose Christ College for our children was one of the best decisions we made for their future. Christ College truly offers first class education and, as our junior pupils start their journey through Christ College, we hope their parents will share the same sentiments.
However, schools are not schools without eager and vibrant young people filling its space. Our dynamic St Nicholas House pupils have made an impressive start and have helped shape the Junior Section, contributing to the building of a nurturing and successful environment where learners can express themselves and achieve, and as young pioneers, they are making history as they go along!
Our overall aim is to extend the Christ College family to younger children, offering the same warmth of community , the same belief in educating the whole person, and the same qualities and values that we promote in the senior school, to those aged 7-11 as we do to our more senior pupils.
Families of our current pupils perceive Christ College as a community – a friendly environment with a strong emphasis on pastoral care, support and guidance. We feel that now is the right time to extend our school to a wider age range and to share the values we promote with a younger generation. We encourage good manners, mutual respect and tolerance, and engender curiosity, hard work and a willingness to get involved in the community.
Outstanding personal care and support of your child is close to the heart of St Nicholas House, as it is in the Senior School. We already have an excellent track record of care, as evidenced in our most recent Estyn Inspection Report, which recognises us as having ‘sector-leading practice’ in this area. We offer this quality of care to younger pupils, who arguably benefit from it even more.
