St Nicolas Association

The object of the Association is first and foremost to arrange social functions for parents and friends.

The St Nicolas Association was established in 2002 and is an important group within the College family. It not only provides a social network for parents, but also opportunities to support the school with special projects that cannot be funded from the school’s existing resources. You automatically become a member of the St Nicolas Association when you pay your Lancing Society fees on the termly bill.

Any money raised from SNA events is used for the provision of extra facilities and amenities for the pupils; for example, the purchase of chess clocks, a barbecue, a PA system in Great School and a portable PA system for musicians and general school use. The Committee is particularly keen to encourage pupils to make suggestions for funding of specific projects.

The Association arranges three major events each year. The hugely popular Hog Roast is held for all families in the Upper Quad on the first Sunday of the Advent Term as a welcome start to the new school year. Other types of previously held events include Burns' Suppers, Quiz Suppers, Comedy Nights and Murder Mystery Evenings. The Committee has also organised four very successful black tie gala events in recent years: the Trinity Ball in May 2015, the Glitter Ball in May 2012, the May Ball in May 2010 and the Blue Moon Ball in May 2007.

The Committee, all of whom are parents, share the responsibility for organising these events and meet regularly at the College. The Annual General Meeting, when the committee members are agreed, is held every October.

Winter Wonderland Ball - November 2016

The College Dining Hall glowed once again for another fantastic party night organised by a joint committee from all three schools on Saturday 26 November 2016. The decorations team produced some magical creations transforming the Hall into a Winter Wonderland set. College caterers served up a delicious Indian buffet before the party really got started to the fantastic sounds of ‘Murdoch’s Crazy Eyes’. RT Williams Insurance Brokers of Brighton kindly sponsored the Photobooth, where donations for prints raised a substantial sum for the chosen charity ‘Off the Fence’, supporting the needs of young homeless people in Brighton and Hove:

The Lancing Trinity Ball - May 2015

The Lancing Trinity Ball on Saturday 2 May 2015 was jointly organised by the PTAs of the College and both prep schools, to celebrate the link between the three schools and welcome Lancing Prep at Worthing into the Lancing family. Almost 200 parents and staff from across all three schools attended to enjoy this glittering social occasion.

Following a champagne reception in Great School, guests enjoyed a special dinner in the Dining Hall and then dancing to live music from local band Big Yellow Taxi. Additional highlights of the evening were the spectacular chocolate fountain and the extra laughs to be had in the photo booth!
