As our school is a Church school in the Diocese of St Albans we are also inspected under the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools or SIAMS scheme. The latest inspection was in April 2012 and said of the school:
The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Nicholas as a Church of England school are good.
"St Nicholas is a good Church of England school because the Governing Body has shown a clear determination to maintain the distinctiveness and effectiveness through strategic leadership appointments since the previous inspection. This has ensured continuity in maintaining the church school ethos which enriches the day to day experiences of the children and all who work in the school"
