St. Nicholas is a special school for pupils aged 4-19 with severe, profound and complex learning needs maintained by Kent County Council. It is situated in the historic city of Canterbury and serves the Canterbury district. St. Nicholas operates on a number of sites and works closely with partner schools and Canterbury College to provide a wide range of opportunities for all its pupils. St. Nicholas is also the base for the outreach team of teachers who support children with special needs in mainstream schools.
Although you may not yet have visited the school, I am pleased to be able to share with you here some information which will give you an idea of what we offer at St. Nicholas. I am sure you will have many questions about entrusting the education and the care of your child to the school and its staff. The staff are professional, enthusiastic and dedicated, and strive to provide all pupils with the best possible education. St. Nicholas works closely with parents and carers to ensure the needs of all pupils are met.
Pupils at St. Nicholas achieve well and make good progress.
We have some excellent specialist resources facilities and are very proud of our school community.
