Letter from the Headteacher



'Be the best you can be'


I am very proud of our students in their attitude to learning, their behaviour around school and the positive relationships they forge with staff and other students.

As a school we work tirelessly to bring about the best possible outcomes for students as we hold the firm belief that all students wish to succeed and be the best they can be in all they do.

Our vision statement outlines all we hope to achieve:

“Our vision for the students at Claydon High School is that they all achieve or exceed their potential, develop their independence and become enquiring and resilient learners who understand their role as outstanding members of the community, within and beyond the school, and are prepared for the challenges of the world.  All staff are committed to providing an inspiring, inclusive and aspirational learning culture in a supportive and stimulating environment that engages, enhances and promotes achievement.”

I am proud to be the Headteacher of a good school (Ofsted 2014) and I hope you feel enthused by our school and all we have to offer.


Sarah Skinner
