An Introduction to our Classes

Throughout St Nicholas House, we aim to foster a love of reading and continue to develop the skills needed to be become confident, independent readers. 

Your child will be encouraged to make full use of the Junior School's well-resourced Library with its extensive range of fiction, non-fiction and reference texts. Weekly Guided Reading sessions develop our pupils’ comprehension skills and facilitate discussion.

Creative and Performing Arts are also given a high profile here. Drama features in curriculum planning and as an extra-curricular activity. All pupils have the opportunity to take part in Inter-House Public Speaking, Eisteddfod and Debating competitions.

The standard of Art and Design & Technology work produced by St Nicholas House pupils is of a very high standard, with individuality and creativity being nurtured. These subjects enjoy specialist facilities including a kiln which enables the study of ceramics to be included in the curriculum programme and access to networked computers to aid pupil research and inspire their planning of projects.
