Visits to St Nicholas School for Admissions 2021 

 

Thank you for showing an interest in our school.  Visitors often comment on the friendly welcome they receive, from staff and children, and the extent to which they witness the children so happily engaged in their varying activities.  This website provides further information about the curriculum and life in school.   

 

To gain an insight into the ethos and atmosphere, we are keen to still manage visits although they will have to take a different form.  We will be unable to visit classrooms but families will be able to see much from a distance, including the various spaces that we have made so special for the children. 

 

We are offering short tours limited to 10 adults and there will be an opportunity to meet key leaders and to hear from some Year 6 children.   We ask that face masks are worn and that hands are sanitised before and after the tour.
