|Welcome to our website|
|Welcome to St Nicholas Primary School – a small school with a big heart and a love of learning.|
|St Nicholas Primary School is a small and friendly school located in a residential area close to Hull University. Pupils come from a diverse range of backgrounds from across the city of Hull.|
|Our school was built in 1897 for the children of the Sailors’ Families Society Orphanage, which was formally situated on the site. We became a community school in 2007 after many years as a Voluntary Aided School. We have a reputation of being a caring school which was highlighted in our recent Ofsted report. It states that:|
|‘St Nicholas’ Primary School is a good school. It provides outstanding care and, by the time they leave, pupils have made outstanding headway in their personal development. Pupils get off to a good start in the Reception class and pupils’ overall achievement through the school is good. The school’s leadership has a passionate vocation to ensure that every child matters. One parent said, reflecting the views of others, that this is ‘a happy, caring, friendly school that supports the “whole child” socially, academically and emotionally.’|
|We provide an excellent learning environment which includes 7 wonderful classrooms, an ICT|
|suite, a music room, a library and an excellent outdoor area which includes a tyre park, 2 adventure trails and a MUGA (multi use games area.)|
|Our classes are organised into 7 single year group classes and we have an early admissions policy which admits pupils in the September of the year of their 5th birthday. We have a high level of teaching support in every classroom, helping to ensure that every child reaches his or her full potential.|
|St. Nicholas Primary School is a community school which admits children between the ages of 4 and 11 years of age. It is not affiliated to any religious denomination. We currently have 196 pupils on roll.|

We look out for each other. We expect the very best of ourselves and each other.
