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

WOW Week  

Above: The winning team presenting their innovative idea in the Enterprise Challenge Cup Tournament.

This event took place at the end of October and was a new initiative for the school involving three days of specially designed activities for each year group. Year 7 had a fabulous time camping at Mersea Outdoor Centre where they took part in various team building activities such as orienteering and rocket building. This was a great experience and a wonderful opportunity for all our new Year 7s to get to know each other. Years 8-10 took part in an Enterprise Challenge Cup Tournament. This focused on creating an entrepreneurial spirit, developing leadership skills and accelerating employability skills. Our business guests and judges were amazed by the fresh ideas, talent and commitment shown by all the teams over the three days. To help them prepare for life outside Claydon High School, Year 11 students spent a day at University Campus Suffolk, worked in school with Suffolk New College and the YMCA and visited Trinity Park for the Suffolk Skills Show. 

Congratulations to everyone for demonstrating such enthusiasm, positivity and hard work during WOW Week. We are very proud of the way you have all impressed our visitors and outside agencies and the pride that you have shown in your school. Well done!
