At St Nicholas we aim to create a community that reflects the teachings of Christ based on the principles of love, care, tolerance and respect for others. The students at St Nicholas are our greatest asset.
We are a Voluntary Aided secondary school in the Diocese of Shrewsbury. The life of the school is conducted in accordance with the rites, practices and observances of the Catholic Church. It is expected that children admitted to the school will take a full and active part in the religious life of the school. There are opportunities for students to go to Mass and to participate in other forms of liturgy. Retreats are organised for students on a variety of occasions at different venues.
A fundamental feature of the community is its members’ sense of responsibility to God, to each other, to oneself and to the wider community. To achieve this goal, the school fosters an awareness of the Catholic Faith within the school community so that members may participate fully and naturally in the life of the Church. Our full time Lay Chaplain offers a faith presence, committed to the values of Christ and on behalf of the community accompanies each member of the school community on their journey of faith.
