Exciting times

As the Senior School celebrates its 10th anniversary and the Prep School looks ahead to its Centenary in 2025, Claremont has been on an extraordinary journey over recent years, culminating in a new and exciting partnership with ISP and a third consecutive  ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in March 2019.  With significant rises in A level performance, the Prep School achieving the much-coveted Green Flag Award and BBC Reporter School status and with an exciting multi-phase site development in full swing to include the opening of new Early Years and Pre-Prep building this year and planning permission for a new state-of-the-art Sports Park, the school has lots to be proud of and plenty to look forward to.

'Outstanding' in all areas

In March 2019, Claremont was judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in all categories for a third successive time, which serves as further evidence of our ongoing commitment to driving standards in teaching at learning and our focus on student outcomes.

Proudly Inclusive

Although non-selective, Claremont’s GCSE and A level results have been truly exceptional. Top performers in 2020 headed to a wide range of high profile universities to include Edinburgh, Loughborough, UCL, Winchester, Bristol and York, with the more creatively-driven, accepting places at UCA, Leeds, City University and other leading institutions specialising in the Arts.

Student Outcomes

In 2020, almost half of A Level results were graded A* to B with year on year improvements seen across the whole range of subjects both at A Level and GCSE.  ALL Biology, Chemistry and Physics A Level students achieved A*-B grades as well as ALL Fine Art and Photography A level students.

Transition

Our unique,  Year 6-11 curriculum further enhances a dynamic  ‘All Through School’ student experience in which we are able to deliver a continuity of educational ethos as well as a happy, seamless transition to senior school when the time comes.

'Through School' Experience

From the Nursery all the way up to Sixth Form, we nurture a culture of mutual respect where every idea has value and possibilities and where pupils learn first hand, that hard work and perseverance lead to better outcomes. We understand that the needs, aims and aspirations of Senior School students approaching their GCSE years and the world of work are very different from those of the children in the Prep School, but many of our Prep School teachers have trained and worked in secondary education, so they are extremely knowledgeable about the challenges that lie ahead. By knowing each child so well and by working closely with the teaching and pastoral leads at the senior school, the Prep School team are able to ensure that by the time children reach Year 8, they are able to quickly adjust to their new senior school routines, and make swift progress in and outside the classroom.
