We understand that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent will ever make, and navigating through the wealth of information online, particularly in the current climate where social distancing and travel restrictions make it difficult for parents and students to visit the school in person, can be both daunting and time-consuming. So for those parents and older students who want to cut to the chase and head straight to the essential information and a ‘concentrated burst’ of Claremont, we have prepared this page by curating the most commonly requested content and links to further reading.
We have really enjoyed the challenge of trying to use digital tools to project a flavour of what school life is like at Claremont, and as a result, it has made us even more ambitious and keen to explore new ways of communicating with prospective parents from afar, particularly International parents who are often unable to visit the school and meet us in person, and working parents based outside of East Sussex.
On this page, you will be able to virtually ‘meet’ some more members of our teaching and leadership team in a series of mini-films they created themselves during lockdown. You will also be able to tour some of our sites, view students’ work and much more. After you have had a chance to explore, if you would like to book a virtual meeting with a member of our team, register for one of our ‘On Demand’ Virtual Open Morning webinars, arrange a private visit, or require further assistance from our Admissions team, please do not hesitate to contact Lily Lam with Senior School and Boarding enquiries and Lucy Tooke for the Prep and Nursery School. We hope to hear from you really soon!

Our new Nursery and Pre-Prep building is due for completion in the Autumn but see if you can pinpoint where it will live on the drone footage after watching the 360-degree tour.
