Welcome to Senior School

Independent school Wales

Pupils from our Prep School proceed into the Senior School in Year 7, where they are joined by pupils from other primary schools. All boys and girls receive a broad education in their first three years in the Senior School. The curriculum includes English, Maths, History, Geography, French, Spanish, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Art & Design, Home Economics, ICT, Music, Religious Studies, Physical Education and PSE.

Towards the end of Year 9, pupils at St Clare’s are carefully advised at this crucial stage with regard to their GCSE options. Final subject combinations are decided after consultation between pupils and their teachers, parents, careers staff and form tutors. There is a wide choice on offer at GCSE.  All pupils take the compulsory subjects of English, English Literature and Mathematics and at least one Science subject. Otherwise, there is free choice, although pupils are advised to choose at least one science and one language in order to maintain a balanced education.

We offer a range of extra-curricular activities and clubs, both during lunchtimes and after school, and pupils are encouraged to join and take part in at least two activities each week.
