This small day nursery at St Clare’s School in Porthcawl was delighted to be recognised as a Top 20 Rated Nursery (Wales) for the second year running.


Nestled in 11 acres of magnificent grounds and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city-life is St Clare’s School and Nursery, welcoming boys and girls from 2 ½ years old. Pupils get the very best start in life in an idyllic setting, with leading Forest School provision, enviable sporting facilities and space to focus on play, exploration and discovery. The bespoke curriculum includes weekly Spanish, Forest School, PE and optional ballet. Pupils thrive on the quality learning experiences that are planned and implemented by the team of highly dedicated and well-qualified staff.


From the moment a pupil joins St Clare’s Nursery they become part of a school family and have access to all the facilities and resources available at an independent school. Deliberately small class sizes ensure staff can give children the time, individual attention and academic stretch to achieve their full potential within an exciting, stimulating and safe environment.


Helen Hier, Headteacher, said “We are absolutely thrilled to receive the accolade of Top 20 Award 2022 (Wales) from  We couldn’t be prouder of our wonderful team who work so hard each and every day to provide each pupil with a rich and stimulating learning experience.  We would like to thank all our lovely parents for taking the time to write the reviews and, of course, a big well done and thank you to our staff for their hard work and dedication.  It means a tremendous amount to be recommended by our families and we truly appreciate this recognition.”
