‘Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.‘
Choosing a school for our children is one of the most significant decisions we will ever make: the environment in which they are educated and the values which are promoted there will influence them for the rest of their lives.
As parents, we all want our children to be safe, secure and happy as well as challenged and stimulated in the classroom. But we want more than that. We imagine our children in the future: as confident, kind and fulfilled men and women who are making a real difference to their world and the people around them. So, how can we be sure that the school we choose will set them off on that route to personal fulfilment?
Here at Clayesmore our philosophy firmly takes into account that long game; supporting parents in helping their children to find a way towards living a life of purpose and meaning, as well as ensuring that they have a strong academic platform from which to grow. We value and appreciate every single child for what they can bring to our community and we provide the atmosphere of warmth, trust and care which is essential for them to truly flourish. A ‘one size fits all’ approach is limiting and as such, we seek to support all individuals in developing their own passions, whatever they might be, which will in turn help them to gain the confidence, ambition and self-esteem to achieve their future goals.
I hope that our website conveys this sense of what makes Clayesmore so special. Please do come and visit: you will be very welcome.
