St Clare's School Reviews

Average Rating:


“The home schooling has been exemplary”
My children have attended St Clare's since they were 3 and a half, they are now 10 and 13. It has always been an excellent school, with wonderful supportive teachers and staff. During the recent lockdowns the school has really shone, both my daughters have received full lessons online by their usual teachers and support from all the school staff. It is a huge relief to know that they will not be falling behind academically, due to the pandemic, and to know that their mental health is always being considered by the staff. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
“An outstanding school”
Outstanding school. Both my children are happy, well cared for and easily reach their potential at St Clare's, with caring, supporting staff who know my children and help them to achieve their best.
