School Rated as Excellent

We are delighted to have been awarded the highest possible grading of ‘excellent’ across all areas, in the most recent school inspection, carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in January 2022.

The top grading was achieved for both the two key areas of pupil achievements (both academic and otherwise) and personal development. In particular, the report notes that Saint Nicholas pupils of all ages are excellent communicators, who are confident, highly articulate, with extremely positive attitudes to learning. Throughout the report, teachers are complimented for their support and encouragement, as well as the mutual respect and kindness they model, which creates a calm and purposeful family environment.

Mr Paul Wilson, the Headmaster, has said; “Everyone at the school is delighted to have had such an outstanding inspection. In particular, I am immensely proud that the inspectors recognised the high standards set by my committed and caring team, which constantly challenge pupils to strive to achieve their best throughout their time with us. I am enormously grateful to all of my colleagues for the part they have played in making this such a successful inspection.”

He continued; “The report was also highly complimentary towards our pupils’ achievements, attitudes to learning and general behaviour, noting their unfailingly courteous and considerate manner, both inside and outside of the classroom. They are indeed a credit to the school, their families and, most importantly, themselves.”
