Introducing our Year 6 Leavers
and their memories of St
Nicholas in their own words.
St Nicholas has been amazing! All the
teachers have been amazing too, and have
taught me well over the years. I am proud
of myself for getting good results in my
SATs. I have made lots of friends but the
ones who stand out the most are Clay and
Shikira and they have been my best friends
since St Nicholas pre-School and I will miss
them and the school too.
I have had a brill time at St Nicholas. Through the 7 years I
have made many friends of which I hope we will keep in
touch. The class I have grown up with are funny, great and
supportive. If I could sum them up in one word, it would be
SPECIAL! I have achieved many things such as the 5a I have
always wanted in my Numeracy SAT and am so proud I was
head girl of such a great school. I will never forget when I
walked into St Nicholas for the first time 7 years ago and
thinking when I leave, I will be so sad because this school is
‘amazeballs!’ (as Miss Harper would say!) and I will also
never forget my best friend, Katie Deamer – she really stood
out to me because she stood by my side and I can tell her
The thing I like about St Nicholas is
my friends when we play football at
break and lunch, we all get along
(most of the time!) The teachers at
St Nicholas are happy all the time
and they are so nice and helpful.
We (our class) have the best levels
ever in our school and I’m really
proud of that!
Ever since I joined St Nicholas, I have become more
confident in everything I have done. I have made great
friends and together we have had some amazing
moments. Even though I only started in year 5, I feel like I
have been here for years and my greatest memory was
when I first started and I would like to thank the teachers
and teaching assistants that helped me with my
confidence and I am going to miss them all. I am also going
to miss my friends.
We all have met new friends at St Nicholas. It is a good
school to be at. All the teachers are nice to us. They are
helpful in all ways.
The seven years in primary school have been amazing. I
have learnt a lot throughout the years with my friends
around me. I will dearly miss my favourite teacher, Miss
Harper, and my best friends, Jess and Katie who started in
year 4. Without them I wouldn’t have had the friends I
When I first came to St Nicholas, I was very shy and I was
nervous about meeting new people, but throughout my
time here, I realised that St Nicholas is just like a family
and it upsets me that I have been here for 6 years and now
I’m going to leave this school. It is important to move on
but sometimes you grow to love and respect the things
that you fear the most like I did when I first came here. I
just want to say a massive thank you to all of the staff and
friends that made me welcome and helped me through
difficult times – especially Miss Harper and Mrs Twist and
my fabulous friends Carris, Tillie and Kelly – they mean the
world to me.
I have had an amazing time at St Nicholas and I have made
amazing friends. I will always remember becoming head
boy because it’s an amazing achievement and I am very
proud of myself. I will miss all my friends and this school! I
am proud of all the things I have learnt and all the fun I
have had. I will remember the great times I’ve had and I will
miss it all!
I really liked this school when I joined and made lots of
friends and memories but as I’m in year 6 now, I will be
leaving to go to high school. My best memory is when we
went to Paris – it was so fun. I now have the confidence to
be more independent. I love all the people that work at St
Nicholas but the 2 people that I will miss the most are Miss
Harper and Mrs Penswick.
I love St Nicholas – I love all the subjects, especially PE.
Also, I like everyone in my class like Jordan, James, Harvey
and Thomas B ….and all the teachers, in particular Mr
Robinson and Miss Harper. St Nicholas will help me in my
future for definite.
I have had a great time at St Nicholas. I have met a lot of
friends along the way. I am proud of what I have learnt in
Numeracy, Literacy and Science. I’m also proud of myself for
being picked for house captain and I had great teachers.
I had a great time at St Nicholas even though I only started
in year 4. My confidence has grown so much. I have learned
new things here and I joined a loving a caring class which
feels like a family. The main thing I will miss from this school
are all my friends and the amazing teachers that help us to
be what we are today. If I could sum up my class in one
word, it would be SPECIAL. Even though some of us are
going to new schools, I will never forget the happy, sad,
crazy and dramatic times we have had. I would like to say a
big thank you to all the staff especially Miss Harper who I
will miss dearly.
St Nicholas has been fantastic! I have learnt loads of things
that I would have never known. I have had a great time with
my friends. It has been a whale of a time and I really don’t
want to leave. I never knew how much St Nicholas meant to
me until now.
Being at St Nicholas has really built up my resilience. I am
now capable of sticking to things even when times get
tough. I have made many wonderful friends but Amelia
Shearman is my best friend and she sticks with me no
matter what. She is amazing! I have achieved many things
from certificates to great SATs results. I am really proud of
I have loved every minute at ST Nicholas School. I have
gained more confidence in every subject I have done. I have
made great friends from reception to year 6, and every
single one of them has stood by me in everything I have
gone through. I am glad I came to this school and joined a
loving and caring class. The people I’m going to miss most
of all are my friends and amazing teachers that have made
me who I am now.
During my time at St Nicholas, I have been educated well,
built up my confidence and learnt to be resilient. But what I
will truly miss about this school is the people there,
especially my friends, one of which I have been friends with
since reception. Tom Dunmore has been my best friend for
as long as I can remember – he has stood out to me like a
star in space and I will miss him quite a lot.
St Nicholas means a lot to me. It has become a major part
of my past and it will be the foundation of my future.
When I first came here, I was just a shy little girl that
nobody really spoke to but now I’m the girl that has lots of
confidence in myself. My friends are a key part of my social
life and it is heartbreaking to leave them behind. I am proud
of myself because I have won numerous achievements but
the one I am most proud of is my Christian Leadership
award which has now been blessed by Father Graham. I will
miss every single person (even if they get on my nerves, not
mentioning any names!)
Goodbye, I wish everyone the best in life.
St Nicholas is a very good school and means a lot to me.
There have been amazing school trips throughout my years
in St Nicholas. I have made good progress in my reading this
year; I won a reading award. Throughout the years,
teachers have taught me lots but when I went into year 6
Miss Harper taught me even more. I am going to miss my
friends, I don’t want to leave them. I hope they do well in
high school. I have really enjoyed topics throughout my 7
years at St Nicholas. Also I will miss my best teacher Miss
Harper. I am very happy about my SATs results and proud of
I love St Nicholas. The teachers and my friends have been
very welcoming considering I started half way through year
6. The teachers have also helped me with my maths since
I’ve been struggling at it and I’m proud that my SATs results
were great. When I leave this amazing school, I will think
about all the fun times I’ve had and will never forget them. I
love the school and I don’t want to leave it!
St Nicholas has given me a great opportunity to make new
friends and give me more confidence in myself to make
even more friends in high school. This great school has
given me a lot of good memories such as PGL, France,
Blackpool Zoo and so on. My favourite one of all is Paris
where I spent time with my teachers and friends. Also my
teachers and friends in school have helped me improve my
subjects and that is why I have loved my time at St Nicholas.
I have enjoyed most of my time at St Nicholas but it is time
to move on. I have good friends at my school and that’s
including bad times, good time and last but not least…funny
times. When the SAts came in year 6, I did better than I
thought I would.
So, yes, I have enjoyed it at this school a lot in my time here
from year 2 to year6.
Being at St Nicholas has built up my confidence. I have
made many friends, but one friend in particular has stood
out. She is always on my side whenever I need her. She
helps with my problems and she is always there for me.
Grace Lewis is a true friend to me, even when she is having
problems of her own she always has time for me. I would
also like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have
helped me too, like Miss Harper and Mrs Penswick, and I
will always remember the happy times at St Nicholas.
St Nicholas has been amazing! I am so proud of myself for
what I have learnt in this school over the last 7 years. I have
also made a friend who has stayed by my side for these
years – Miiko Cox. Also, I am now wiser, braver and more
confident than ever due to my experiences in my last year. I
shall miss this school very dearly and never forget it.
Being at St Nicholas has made me proud due to all the
effort I have put into my work and the progress I have
made. I am so glad I came to this school because I have met
very kind friends who are always there for me. I think I have
made great improvements in my work and thanks to all the
teachers that have taught me throughout my time at St
During my time at St. Nicholas I have earned the
‘performing arts’ award. I love performing, especially
singing, and coming in 1st place in pop idol 2013. It was such
a wonderful experience. For our end of year play we did
‘Wizard Of Oz’. I loved rehearsing and auditioning for the
part I wanted. I got the part of Dorothy and I enjoyed
working with all my amazing friends. I will miss my time and
friends at St. Nicholas but my memories will stay in my
I have loved being at St. Nicholas, In year 2 when I started I
made lots of new friends also we always sang lots of songs
with Miss Sunley. In year 3 I remember fun games of tig
with Mr. Robinson! It was awesome! In year 5 we went to a
recycling place, it stunk but we had loads of fun with Miss
Darkins! In year 6 I was a break dancing monkey in The
Wizard of OZ which was amazing! I’ve made amazing
friends (Erin, Paige and Casey) who always put a smile on
My favourite time in St. Nicholas was when I first came to
school in year 3 because I was excited to make new friends.
On the first day Harriet showed me around the school so I
would know where everything was from that moment I
knew I would love being part of the St. Nicholas family. I
have enjoyed winning awards in every Sports Day, going to
Paris and performing in Schools Alive. I will miss all my
friends but am looking forward to going to high School.
During my time at St. Nicholas school I’ve made 3 great
friends: Curtis, Reece and Jason most of the time we are
the best of friends though sometimes we fall out but it is
always sorted by the next day! This year we went to Paris
and I enjoyed Disney Land going on the rollercoasters! I will
miss my friends but I am looking forward to making new
friends at high school.
During my time at St. Nicholas, I have made many friends.
As I have watched countless people come and go, I’m lucky
to still have my best friends. Reece, Jason and Harry have
stuck by me through thick and thin, always putting a smile
on my face.
In my time at St. Nicholas, P.E was my favourite lesson. It’s
so fun. You get to do tennis, football and gymnastics. I have
enjoyed learning with my friends and will never forget
During my time in school, I have learnt new things like
World War 2 and Titanic. As I really enjoy learning about
history, these are topics that interested. I love sport and
enjoyed playing cricket with Mr. Robinson. Sport’s Day is
always one of my favourite days especially the egg and
In year 6 I will remember performing The Wizard of Oz. We
had a great time rehearsing the Wizard of Oz and it was
worth all the hard work! I enjoyed learning the dancing for
the poppies, break dancing monkeys and being a munchkin!
I will miss all the amazing friends I have made at this school.
My favourite time at St. Nicholas is when we went to Paris.
The best thing in Paris was Disney land because we went on
all the fast rides and Miss Harper got her picture taken with
I think I might cry but I know if I work hard I will have a
Now that I am leaving St. Nicholas I have a few things to say
about a 7 year here. Some of my favourite things I have
done in year 6 are: The Paris trip, Schools Alive (which was
my first ever performance on a stage!) and Wizard of Oz.
I have made some excellent friends who I will never forget.
Curtis, Harry and Reece will always be in my life no matter
We have had a great time rehearsing for the Wizard Of Oz.
It was really funny and on the night it all came together-
with a few ups and downs. We all enjoyed learning lines
and I had loads of fun backstage with my best friend Kiara.
We also had an amazing time learning to dance with Mrs
Seargeant. It was mind blowing, performing in front of so
My experience at St. Nicholas has been a once in my life
opportunity; I have loved working and learning with all my
friends. When I first started in year 1, I didn’t know many
people but I loved our teacher (Mrs Pollard) and by the
time I got to year 2 I knew everyone and had lots of new
friends. In year 5 we had a brilliant time with the newest
teacher in the school (Miss Darkins). We went to PGL which
was an amazing adventure. In year 6 we went to Disney
Land Paris which was incredible! Year 6 has been a year I
will never forget and I will always keep my friends in my
heart as long as I live.
I started St. Nicholas in year 4 and since then I have made
some fantastic friends along the way. In year 5 I did Schools
Alive for the first time and the theme was ‘Through the
years!’ IT was such an amazing show. In year 6 we
performed ‘Bugsy Malone’ learning some fantastic dance
moves from Mrs Sargent. I had an amazing time teasing Mr.
Cowell in Paris and going on all the rides! An experience I
will never forget. I’ve had a fantastic time at St. Nicholas.
Thank you everyone!
When I started this school (in year 2) I was scared - no I was
petrified! I saw a class staring at me and I hoped I would fit
in. Year 3 was great. We played tig all the time and had lots
of fun. In year 4 I learnt new things (not just work). In year 5
we had a great time, we went to PGL. In year 6 we went to
Paris and struggled with SATS. It’s now the end. I’m going to
try to stick with my best friend, Destiney, and make some
new friends along the way.
My favourite moment of year 6 is when my SATS results
came. I was so proud of myself to have such amazing
results. Another one of my favourite memories is when we
set off to Paris. We all had a fantastic time! I will miss all my
friends that I will be leaving behind but I will hopefully be
able to see them again in the future.
There are so many memories from St. Nicholas school, but my
favourites have to be the trips. PGL was an adventure with raft
building, going on a zip wire, and many more adventures but
nothing can top the Paris trip. Disneyland, the Eiffel tower and
the river Seine cruise were all so fun. Thank you to all the
wonderful teachers from Reception to year 6 for taking us on
the trips and teaching us everything we know. But school
wouldn’t be the same without all of my friends. Seven years ago,
I was about to start in Reception. I already knew Harriet from
nursery, but soon I made lots of new friends. As the years went
by, from Reception to year 1, Year 1 to year 2, more and more
friends joined the St. Nicholas family. And it will be so hard to
leave, but I will remember all of the fabulous memories and take
them with me to St. Georges.
During my time at St. Nicholas I’ve earned a ‘king
friendship’ award. I am Deputy Head Girl. Mr Mellor said
‘the girl I have awarded this to is a friend to everyone. She
brings people together and sorts out fights. I have never
had to tell her off and she is a great team player. I
appreciate her hard work at this school. Would Eleanor
Sharpe like to come out and collect this trophy.’ At that
moment, my eyes started to fill with tears. I knew it was a
moment I would never forget. I will miss my time at St.
Nicholas, but my memories and friends will always stay in
Jack St. John Foti
My favourite time in 6SD was when we were competing in
Sports Day. We were doing the 3 legged race, Adam had to
pull me over the finish line as I fell over in the middle of the
Unsurprisingly we didn’t win but it was fun.
There are so many amazing memories from St. Nicholas but
the one memory I won’t forget is when I met Jacob for the
first time on the red climbing frame on the first day in
reception. We have been best friends ever since and we will
stay best friends for the rest of our lives.
From reception to year 6, I have enjoyed every moment. I
remember my first day and I will remember my last.
My first ever memory was when I met Adam on the
climbing frame and ever since that day, we have been best
friends, even though we have had a few ups and downs.
I have enjoyed every day of Primary school- it has been
Hello my name is Mackenzie. During my time at St. Nicholas
I have had lots of fun meeting Jack, Adam, Jacob, Jason and
In year 5 I met Miss Darkins and in year 6 we learnt about
Titanic, went to Paris and PGL.
My favourite time ever in St. Nicholas was when I first met
Miss Darkins, knowing that I was going to have the best
two years with her ever.
My happiest memories in St. Nicholas are making lots of
friends on trips to different places, performing in class
assemblies together, coming second and third in choir of
the year and performing in the African Music Festival. We
have had Miss Darkins for two years and the experiences I
have had I will remember for the rest of my life.
In reception, I made lots of new friends and every day since
has been lots of fun. In year 3, we all had lots and lots of
fun with Mr Robinson.
We had simply the best time! In year 5, we had a new
teacher (Miss Darkins). we were the first to have her and
she has been the best teacher ever.
