My father was born in Folkestone and went to school at St Nicholas School, I have a lovely photo of the class in 1951 taken by 'Lambert Weston & Son of 106 sandgate road. Does any one know any more about the school? I am doing a memory book for his 70th Birthday!

I don't remember a school by this name Nicola. Do you happen to know where in Folkestone it was located? There is a St. Nicholas Nursery school now in Wiltie Gardens Folkestone, but it is a nursery school situated in a house.

I have sent you an e-mail to let you know that I have one school listed on my Buildings page as that name, but it was an all girls private school which closed in 1924. However, I have no record of whether it re-opened as a boys school, or a co-ed.

St.Nicholas School was in Wiltie Gardens.

Thank you Paul. Do you know if it was once a boys' school, or co-ed? As I mentioned above, it was a girls private school until 1924, then I have no information until currently, where it is now a nursery school.

At last I have had an opportunity to speak to a former pupil. It was co-ed up to 1941 and then re-opened after the war as, I believe, a boys'school. I can remember the green caps with a StN badge. All uniforms sold in those days at Broadleys in Sandegate Road.

Thank you Paul, I appreciate the effort you have gone to on this, and I am sure Nicola will too if she comes back.
