Academic Stretch and Enrichment

Allowing every child to fulfil his or her potential is at the core of our values. Clayesmore’s staff and governors are therefore committed to supporting and developing excellent provision for every child’s progress and achievement at school, as manifested in our rich and varied curriculum.

Real learning is exciting and your child will be encouraged to extend themselves in ways they might never have thought possible. They will learn higher-order thinking skills in all their lessons and in extra-curricular activities too – in the UK Maths Challenge, the Model United Nations, Japanese club, national writing competitions, in coding and cryptography. For those who think creatively, there is excellence to be found in art, music, and drama.

We are a member of NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education), and regularly enable children to achieve national recognition in, for example, their maths, literacy, and their music. But we will celebrate your child’s achievements in all they do, as all such success builds confidence in other areas of their life and work.
