Welcome to the Senior School

  • Sixth Form Open Evening

    Come and meet us! Friday 7 October, 7pm

Clayesmore is an extraordinarily special place and I hope that you will quickly form a strong first impression of the friendly, happy and exciting atmosphere that pervades the school.

Every boy and girl in Clayesmore matters to me hugely and I am passionate about what I do – about Clayesmore itself, of course, but I am also passionate about helping every single pupil who comes here to discover the excitement and the joy of learning; passionate about ensuring we draw out their strengths, their talents and their gifts in whatever field they might be found; and, above all, through the ups and downs of young adulthood I am passionate about nurturing them so they have the very best opportunities we can provide to prepare them for adult life.

I hope you’ll come and see us soon. I shall look forward to hearing about your family and to telling you more about what this lovely school can offer them.

Jo Thomson, Head
