Prep Pastoral Care

We value your child’s happiness.  A happy child is a motivated child is an over-performing child.  We have a strong and supportive pastoral structure led by Mrs Layland, Head of Prep School.

St Clare’s provides a return to traditional old fashioned values and standards in a modern setting.  We believe good manners and high personal standards of dress and conduct cost nothing and that a culture of mutual respect and courtesy is a valuable life skill.

Estyn praised the quality of care, support and guidance, commenting: “..the well-planned personal, social education programme provides pupils with appropriate information on moral issues, personal safety and hygiene.”

The inspectors also commented on the school’s inclusive ethos, saying: “The school is a fully inclusive community with a caring ethos based firmly on traditional family values. Fairness, respect and consideration for others are endorsed in all aspects of school life.”

St Clare’s educates the whole child in preparation for life, higher education and the world of work. Pupils leave St Clare’s as independent resilient lifelong learners with the necessary life skills to become future leaders.

St Clare’s will always be small enough to ensure that we have a deep and valuable knowledge of every individual pupil but large enough to create meaningful communities and provide a wide and varied academic, pastoral and extra-curricular offer.
