We believe that children need to be given space and an atmosphere in which they can mature naturally, growing in confidence. At Abbot's Hill the sense of being part of an extended family and caring community, coupled with the care and dedication of the staff mean children are provided with an environment in which individuality and relationships are nurtured.
A high standard of care and support is given to all, children are known not only by their class teacher but by the whole community from school secretary to catering and grounds staff. Positives relationships with every member of the community are encouraged as they learn to interact with not only their peers but those older and younger than themselves.
Each child and member of staff is a member of a Clan, rather than a school House, a sense of belonging is gained from this experience as well as friendships and community. The awarding of Clan points is celebrated as part of a weekly assembly along with other individual successes and achievements.
Positive relationships are at the heart of a successful school, those enjoyed at St Nicholas House enable the children in our care to thrive.
