Enhancing the curriculum.

At St Clare’s, an enriching school experience is as important as academic progress. We aim to provide a multitude of trips, musicals, sporting, and cultural events while promoting employability for our older pupils.

The curriculum is complemented by a comprehensive programme that offers a regular schedule of wide-ranging clubs from chess, cheese and cookery club, to French and football and investment banking to international film club.

Just a few of the much-loved extra-curricular activities offered in our school.

Cheese Club

Mrs Smart’s monthly cheese club is more than just a place for pupils to gather and eat cheese, they’re a learning experience as well.

Chess Club

Chess club provides an opportunity to meet new friends and boost social interaction, without any requirement or expectation to be at a certain level of skill.


Mr Jones’ STEM Club gives pupils the chance to explore subjects such as science, technology, engineering and Maths in less formal settings.

Musicals & Productions

After nearly 3 years without a school production, 2022 sees everyone back on stage before Christmas for Oliver!, our whole school production from Year 2 to Year 13.


Educating the whole child.

At St Clare’s School, we endeavour to educate the whole child. Our aim is to send young people out into the world of work as responsible, balanced young citizens.

We do this by offering activities that form an essential part of promoting employability and enhancing academic attainment. In doing so, pupils are taught essential life skills that have benefits well beyond the classroom.

Developing life-skills and character education have always been at the forefront of our day-to-day pastoral care at St Clare’s. All pupils partake in a vast range of activities in our unique Enrichment Programme whilst focussing on wellbeing.

Through ‘pupil voice’ and as voted by our Student Council, the Enrichment Programme is devised into six tailor-made sessions, exploring skills that sometimes are not explicitly addressed on the timetable.

From team building challenges to debating with other schools across the globe, we aim to enhance pupil employability through the additional skills acquired.

A charity focus is central to our Enrichment Programme; pupils lead the planning of events to generate a contribution to others.


Empowerment through challenge.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) is an important part of our extra-curricular programme and very popular with St Clare's pupils. It is an example of our core values: Achievement, Challenge and Excellence.

Every year, pupils embark on this nationally recognised programme – which is highly regarded by employers, colleges and universities – with the help and supervision of our specially trained staff.

DofE is a particularly rewarding programme, growing strength of character as pupils work towards progressive levels of achievement: Bronze, Silver and Gold. The various Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition sections of the programme see pupils work both independently and as part of a team, embracing challenges and making memories for life.


Pupils benefit from our location.

At St Clare’s School, our pupils nurture into individuals full of character and potential. All year round exciting trips are arranged, ensuring our young individuals are provided ample opportunities to explore, get creative and most of all have fun!

One of the great advantages of our central coastal location is that there are so many extraordinary cultural and historic sites within easy reach of the school.

Whether fossil hunting on the beach or a cultural trip to a castle, museum or theatre, our children grow as individuals as well as gain a deeper understanding of the topics they are learning.

Additionally, our Year 6 children enjoy a residential trip after their exams. This is a much-anticipated highlight of their time at school, where they get to enjoy four days of challenging outward-bound activities.

Examples of recent school trips include:
  • Beaches

  • Castles

  • Cadbury World

  • Barcelona

  • Thorpe Park

  • Theatres

  • Disneyland Paris

  • Acorn Adventure, Brecon
