Clayesmore Prep School offers boys and girls an excellent educational and pastoral foundation to achieve their academic goals and to foster their personal interests and passions. We aim to send our pupils off to their Senior school with confidence, ambition and compassion.

We want every pupil to thrive in our school, and we achieve this by taking the time to get to know everyone who joins us. We want to know about each child’s interests and aptitudes so we can build on their enthusiasm to develop confidence in all aspects of school life from academics, to sport, art, drama, music and more. Excellent teaching and wide-ranging educational experiences beyond the classroom encourage children to take pleasure in learning at Clayesmore Prep. 
We have around 200 pupils from a wide range of backgrounds including local families, armed forces families, expatriates and international pupils. Our boarding and day pupils are closely integrated so that everyone receives the very best education we can offer, in a friendly, tight knit community.
We occupy part of Clayesmore School’s 62 acre grounds, and are thus able to supplement our own dedicated preparatory school facilities with  resources such as a large sports centre, a full-sized astroturf, theatre, chapel and fantastic areas for outdoor learning. We also benefit from older pupils at Clayesmore mentoring and supporting our younger pupils, leading them by positive example and inspiring them to achieve.
Clayesmore Prep is a wonderful place to be a child and we encourage you to visit us so we can show you how we can get the very best out of your son or daughter, whatever their individual strengths and skills.
