Entry to our Senior School is at thirteen (Year 9) and we welcome children from all over the region and beyond, as well as a large proportion of our own Prep pupils.
Clayesmore is unusual. You will get good A Level and GCSE results and, if you wish to, go on to some of the best universities in the world. We offer a huge range of sports, drama, music, clubs and societies. But when The Tatler Schools Guide said Clayesmore is “more than a school, it’s an educational community”, they touched on its uniqueness.
Here every child is valued and respected. We teach you in ways that will help you do well academically and socially, so you can flourish not just at GCSE and A Level but at university, at work and in their wider life too. We consciously develop the personal skills and human qualities needed in adult life, and the attitudes that will enable a young person to flourish long after they have left school.
We have none of the hierarchies that permeate some schools: here all pupils are valued from the day they join us and they live and grow in a warm, friendly, genuinely open and tolerant atmosphere. You will feel this as soon as you visit. When anything unsettles this atmosphere we act quickly, kindly and alongside parents to put things right.
Here, using its all-embracing, holistic approach, Clayesmore continues to strengthen and guide, educationally, socially, physically and emotionally, its students, using a powerful and effective combination of dedicated, enthusiastic teaching and first class pastoral care.
