St Nicholas’ School

Founded in 1935, St Nicholas’ school has an outstanding reputation for high academic achievement, excellent pastoral care and a wide range of enrichment opportunities.

What sets St Nicholas’ apart from other schools is our friendly atmosphere, sense of community and strong educational ethos. Our pupils are inspired to learn and grow at their own pace, developing their unique talents whilst fostering a lifelong love of learning. Our GCSE results are ranked amongst the best nationally and we consistently achieve the highest rating of ‘Excellent’ awarded by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

St Nicholas’ School is set in 30 beautiful acres of Hampshire countryside but despite our enviable rural location, we are easily accessible and have a range of bus routes.

We are an all-through school for girls up to the age of 16 and boys from 3 – 7, in a safe and nurturing environment. Our fantastic facilities include an Astroturf pitch, sports fields, forest school and purpose-built performance and arts buildings. Coupled with our excellent wrap-around care, we create the perfect environment for an outstanding education.

With this balance, we are passionate about supporting children’s academic excellence by offering a broad curriculum and strong values at the heart of everything we do.

St Nicholas’ pupils are well-educated, well-mannered and confident to face the future.

Of course, there is no substitute for a visit to see St Nicholas’ School for yourself, so please contact the Registrar directly to arrange a personal tour.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
At St Nicholas’ everyone is valued, everyone is someone.
