Our School

Tucked away in North Walsham you will find a small Independent Prep School and Nursery that recognises the importance you place on selecting the best learning environment for your son or daughter. St Nicholas House offers a happy, quality, all-round education where talents and personalities are cherished.

Parents can send their children to the Nursery at two years old, moving into the main School between the ages of four and five years. Traditional values, which are central to the school's ethos, go hand-in-hand with a progressive education. Small class sizes allow for more individual attention from staff who value and understand every child and can spend quality time with them to enhance their learning. As well as enabling children to achieve their full potential, the aim is to build confidence and self-esteem – the real key to success. Pupils leave at age eleven with a strong work ethic and a sense of worth, ready to embrace the challenges of tomorrow.

Headmaster, Philip Oldroyd, says “The intimate atmosphere is a particular strength of the School, enabling us to build warm relationships not only with the children but their parents as well. Parents are as much part of this school as their children"
