About St Clare’s School

Welcome to St Clare’s School!


“COVID-19 cases are rising in the city. If your child is asked to self-isolate along with their school bubble, it’s more important than ever that the child is kept at home to prevent further spreading of the virus. They shouldn’t be attending activity groups, parties or mixing with other children at local parks.”


At St. Clare’s school our students are remarkable with unique abilities. Their education is about providing opportunities for them to flourish within and beyond the classroom. It is the aim of the whole school community to help each child become a successful learner and reach their aspirational goals.

The culture at St. Clare’s is underpinned by our core values;


St. Clare’s has a history of excellence and holds a strong belief in the power of education to change children’s lives and the right of every child to receive an excellent education. The school community is dedicated to building opportunities for students to achieve the highest academic standards, ensuring that they are known well as individuals and that their unique personality, talents and interests are nurtured and developed to the full in preparation for their next stage of life and learning.

As a school our main job is to make sure students are happy, safe and reaching their potential. Families make an important contribution to their child’s achievements at school and from our experience we know that a happy and successful school depends on all of us working together.

If you would like to know more about our lovely school, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team.
