Saint Nicholas School, Old Harlow

Saint Nicholas School was established in 1939 in the hamlet of Churchgate Street, near Old Harlow. The school moved premises to its current site in nearby Hillingdon House, Old Harlow in 1977. It currently educates 400 boys and girls aged 3 to 16.

The school site including gardens and grounds, extends to over 14 acres (57,000 m2). Lower, middle and upper schools are each housed in their own area, within close proximity of each other, enabling access to shared facilities. The school is equipped with specialist classrooms, science laboratories, technology areas, ICT rooms, two libraries and a theatre. Sports facilities include extensive playing fields, tennis courts, a heated swimming pool and a sports hall.[1]

Saint Nicholas School is a registered charity, managed by the Board of Governors and the Headmaster.

In September 2014, the school opened a pre-school for children aged 2 1/2 to 4 years old called the Little Saints Pre-School.[2]
