Two Clayesmore students will be spending a part of their summer holidays on the stage of the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton as part of the theatre’s Summer Youth Project to stage the school production of West End favourite Les Misér
We are delighted to announce that our Prep School Chamber Music Group were highly commended for their performance of Tico Tico, described as “wonderful…joyful…full of energy and enthusiasm”, in the finals of the Pro Corda Chamber Music Festival 2018
Clayesmore Prep boarding pupils did not let the snow get in the way of their school day on Thursday 1 March. Not content with merely playing with the white stuff, the children created a play about it in just one day.

Our Chamber Music group, the UK’s under 12 chamber music champions, brought Clayesmore music to an entirely new audience this week when they traveled to Leiston Abbey in Suffolk to give a concert at the headquarters of Pro Corda.
Music isn’t just an enjoyable pastime, tradition or field of study; music is one of the most powerful educational tools in the world. Every child (and every adult) can benefit from music, in sometimes unexpected ways.
