General Information

St. Nicholas Preparatory School is a happy, vibrant independent school with Montessori Nursery.

We are a modern school founded on traditional values that prepares children for entrance to leading London schools. Together with academic and intellectual accomplishment we believe that the happiness of a child is a true measure of success, and that children learn best when they are happy. We therefore focus on developing the whole person and successfully prepare each pupil for life as a fulfilled adult.

Facilities

We have great space, outdoors and indoors, which pupils benefit from on a daily basis. A large, secure garden to the rear of the building is used by nursery and reception children for PE and Games lessons with a specialist PE teacher. It is also a playground and each day all children enjoy “garden time” in this wonderful outdoor space. Across the road in Hyde Park our older pupils can be found playing football and rounders, and children in Years 1-6 walk the short distance to Imperial College to use its large purpose built sports hall for gymnastics, netball and rock climbing. All children in Years 2-6 have a weekly swimming lesson in the Imperial College 25m indoor swimming pool.

St. Nicholas School is surrounded by a wealth of natural opportunity, being adjacent to the Royal Colleges of Art and Music, The Science Museum, the Natural History Museum, the V&A, the Royal Albert Hall and Albert Memorial, and the Hyde Park Tennis Club. All of these and more are visited by pupils on a regular basis.
