A message from the Head

Welcome to our website; I hope it manages to convey a sense of the Clayesmore spirit! In discovering Clayesmore you have uncovered that rare gem: a school which, through its commitment to an inclusive and holistic approach to education, manages to build a rigorous academic programme upon those essential human foundations of integrity, kindness, hope and service. From our carefully thought through curriculum to our awe-inspiring location in the heart of the stunning Dorset countryside, Clayesmore seeks to ensure that during their time here, each and every pupil will grow up experiencing that perfect blend of challenge, adventure and fun which in turn will equip them with confidence and ambition for life.

I am sure that from the minute you walk through our doors, you too, will feel the magic of Clayesmore.
