St Nicholas Church of England Primary School and Nursery is a one form entry primary school located near the centre of Stevenage.

The school boasts its own ancient woodlands and is set adjacent to Fairlands Valley Park. Forest school plays an important part in our curriculum and we are keen to further develop our outside learning environment.

Our school was rated as “Good” by Ofsted in 2020 and “Outstanding” by SIAMS in 2017. For more information, please view our most recent reports and have a look at our virtual tour.

We are a friendly, supportive and high achieving school, promoting traditional values alongside our church-inspired ethos of ‘Learning, Loving, Living in God’s Family”.

A new Headteacher will breathe new life into our school and see the ways we can continue to develop our staff and hone the outcomes for our young people, so that they leave us as confident learners who can go on and succeed in the next stage of their education.

St Nicholas is a vibrant, mixed community with 30% of children speaking English as a second language and hosting over 20 different languages. Whilst we are predominately a Christian school, we also welcome children from other faiths and none.

We are proud of our wonderfully diverse school and welcome families from all corners of the globe.
