St Nicholas CE Primary Academy
St Nicholas CE Primary Academy, as part of Aquila, The Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust, is situated in the heart of New Romney, set in beautiful surroundings, and is well-resourced to meet the needs of its 15 classes and 400+ children, in this over-subscribed and well-maintained school judged Good with Outstanding features by OFSTED (May 2019).
We have a committed and enthusiastic staff who are determined to enable every child to reach their potential by providing them with a stable, caring environment where children are happy to attend and are stimulated and keen to learn while developing their potential. We cater to a wide range of abilities encouraging all children to achieve at their highest level.
Our church school status means we have a strong Christian ethos and links to St Nicholas Church in New Romney which enriches both our collective worship and school values.
We are fortunate to have on-site an outstanding private nursery, which provides breakfast and an after-school club within the school, and a Children's Centre.
The academy also has a Specialist Resource Provision (SRP). The SRP is a 14-place specialist provision sited within the mainstream academy for children with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) designation.
New Romney is an ancient Cinque Port situated in rural Kent, with excellent road links to Ashford (20 minutes), Canterbury (45 minutes) and Folkestone (30 minutes), or if you live in East Sussex only 45 minutes from Hastings!
We invite you to visit our school and discover for yourself the unique benefits of St Nicholas.
