Curriculum

Claremont life centres on a broad and balanced curriculum designed and developed by a large, very well qualified teaching staff.  The aim is not only to equip pupils for the Common Entrance or Scholarship Examinations, but to teach a breadth of skills which will serve them well in their future lives.

The Claremont curriculum is tailored to the needs of pupils and their future aspirations.  While the National Curriculum is a useful starting point, departments will adapt and enhance their programmes of study to ensure that every pupil is motivated, inspired and challenged.  In addition to the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, the Claremont syllabus includes French, History, Religious Studies, Geography, IT, Art and Design, Music, Drama and PE.  The Common Entrance syllabus is taught in Years 7 and 8.

Boys and girls leave Claremont Prep School, usually at thirteen, predominantly to join Claremont Senior School, and also other Senior Schools of their choice. It is a testament to the excellent preparation that pupils receive at Claremont Prep School that a great many of our leavers gain scholarships and awards across the range of academic, cultural and sporting achievement.
