St. Clare's School
St. Clare's is a happy, caring school with a strong sense of community. Each pupil is unique and the school aims to help every individual to develop to his or her full potential. The person who is a little different from the crowd will be able to flourish; the bright will be challenged. The school is demanding and tolerant, challenging and gentle. It is our job to discover and nurture each pupil's ability.
The school believes in the education of the whole child. We encourage our pupils to have good moral values, develop high self-esteem, and a concern and respect for others and the world around them. Success in music, the arts and extra-curricular activities is equally as important as academic success.
Educational visits and recreational excursions are an important part of school life and these include theatre outings, visits to educational centres and museums, field trips to local sites, those further afield and also abroad.
We are proud of our academic achievements - the school celebrated a 100% A Level pass rate in 2009. The number of pupils receiving A - C grades was an astounding 94.2% with over 75% of pupils receiving A - B grades. Pupils did particularly well at French and Spanish with each subject receiving an impressive full complement of A grades.
Just a week after a record year 100% A Level pass rate was announced; pupils from St Clare's have achieved an exemplary 100% pass rate at GCSE as well. A highly commendable 96% of pupils achieved 5 or more GCSE pass grades at A* - C and nearly half of the overall grades were at A* / A.
