Preparatory School

The perfect school for inquisitive young minds.

Our Preparatory school educates all children aged 2 ½ - 11 years from our Nursery & Reception classes through to Years 1 to 6. Our pupils are happy children with high self-esteem and a strong belief in their abilities, combined with respect for others and their surroundings.

At St Clare’s, we offer children a friendly and supportive environment in which we encourage each individual to develop their skills to their full potential.

Whilst aiming to give each child the strongest academic start in life that we can, we also encourage them to participate in extra-curricular activities such as art, music, sports and drama.

The warmth, friendship, happiness and passion for learning and excitement for embracing new challenges which exist within our school is palpable.

Vision & values

St Clare's is a beautiful school both inside and out, it has an old soul but refuses to stand still.

From Nursery through to Sixth Form, our purpose is clear. Our strong curriculum, steadfast pastoral care and enriching extra-curricular programme enable us to provide pupils with the freedom and support to flourish independently.

Our approach is to teach each and every child in the most effective way for them; we call this individualised learning. At the heart of this approach is our ability to understand precisely where your child is on their learning journey.

In choosing St Clare’s as a school for your son or daughter you are ensuring that they are educated in a nurturing environment and will realise their full potential.

“We feel that our child has been supported both academically and pastorally in the most personalised way.”

A remarkable coastal setting.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life on the South Wales coast, St Clare’s offers an environment where pupils can feel truly inspired.

One of the advantages of being an all-through school is that our Prep School pupils are also able to benefit from our excellent Senior School facilities:

- Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard as part of our commitment to accelerating digital learning in the classroom.

- Our all-weather surfaced, multi-use space enables year-round netball, football, hockey, basketball, tennis and other sports.

- As well as excellent indoor and sports facilities, our outside space encourages every pupil to learn, grow and develop.

Facilities at-a-glance:

Families are always welcome to visit the school. If you are unable to visit in person, then we invite you to take a virtual walk through our doors instead.


Extending education beyond the classroom.

At St Clare’s we believe that an enriching school experience is as important as academic progress. We aim to provide a multitude of trips, musicals, sporting and cultural events.

The curriculum is complemented by a comprehensive programme that offers a regular schedule of wide-ranging clubs from chess, musical theatre, French, cookery, netball, cross-country and fitness, to gentler activities like art, mindful colouring and traditional board games.

We also deliver a bespoke enrichment programme which educates pupils outside the boundaries of the academic world.


Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of what we do.

Our Deputy Head – Pastoral & Wellbeing is specifically responsible for the safeguarding and pastoral welfare of all pupils in our care.

With every child known to all members of staff, our friendly colleagues work collaboratively to oversee the emotional and academic development of each child.
