Open Events - Virtual Tour September 2020

It is my great pleasure to introduce our recently produced virtual school tour that has been designed and produced by our fantastic student leaders here at The Clere.  They have been keen to show prospective parents and pupils a glimpse into school life and all that we can offer at The Clere.


In ‘normal’ times, we are able to offer pupil led tours around our school for year 5 and 6 pupils.  However, due to the unusual circumstances we currently find ourselves in, our student leaders have produced this virtual school tour so that you are able to get a good flavour of life at The Clere.  As well as the virtual tour, our school website and most recent Ofsted inspection report are good sources of information.


In addition, I have shared below a short presentation from me as the very proud Headteacher at The Clere School.


At The Clere we have high academic expectations of all our students and we take pride in providing first class pastoral care, in a stunning rural setting.  In September 2019, we entered into a partnership with St. Bartholomew’s School in Newbury in order to work together to grow young people to be the best they can be, sharing staff and resources.

Welcome to The Clere School


It is a pleasure and privilege to introduce you to The Clere School website.


We are a rural school with high expectations leading to academic excellence for all our pupils. We believe strongly that building students’ learning capacity has the power to transform lives. The nurture and development of every pupil as a well-rounded individual lies at the heart of all that we do at The Clere. We pride ourselves on knowing our students as individual learners, developing their many skills and talents to ensure they are successful.  Our curriculum is highly academic, decidedly challenging and uniquely personalised.  It is designed to ensure pupils make exceptional progress and become respectful, responsible and resilient citizens.


At The Clere we help shape the lives of our students, to realise their academic potential and provide them with the skills and values they need for life’s journey. We believe in the power and value of education to change lives and the need to focus on academic achievement.


We are committed to developing every student’s knowledge, skills, qualities and values to ensure they lead successful and fulfilling adult lives. We are proud of our students' academic success, contribution to the community, self-belief and determination to make a difference. We have an excellent, dedicated staff who support the students in all their learning and extra-curricular activities.


As an inclusive school committed to equality and continual improvement, we believe in our core purpose: to inspire enjoyment of learning in a high quality environment where every person matters and no child is left behind.


Thank you for your interest in our school and I encourage you to look round our website and gain an insight into The Clere School.
