Welcome to Nelson St Philip

We hope our families enjoyed reading our recent Ofsted inspection report and are as proud as we are of our whole school community in achieving the ‘Good’ overall judgement, with Behaviour and Attitudes graded ‘Outstanding’.

The inspectors recognised the immense strengths in school and how the staff have worked tirelessly to improve standards in teaching and learning to provide our children with the high-quality education they deserve.

As Ofsted point out, ‘The school has high expectations for pupils’ achievement and for their behaviour.

Pupils live up to these expectations every day. They are polite and respectful to each other and staff. Through their interactions with their peers, pupils demonstrate kindness and gentleness. This creates a calm and purposeful atmosphere in which pupils can learn well.’


God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.’ 1 John 4:16                                                                     

'The small school with the Big Heart'.   

This website is intended to give you some information about our school.    

It cannot tell you everything, and we hope you will visit the school,

ask questions and form your own impressions!   

At Nelson St Philip's we endeavour to make learning an exciting

adventure for all our children.

We want  every pupil to achieve their full potential and ensure that

they are fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in their

secondary education and the world of work.

 “We love to learn, we learn to love,

with Christ as our Guide, we love and learn together.”
