We are very proud of our students and the opportunities we afford them at Claydon High School.
We have a firm belief that all students wish to succeed and we will work hard to ensure they all achieve their best.
We have high expectations in terms of behaviour, work ethic and dress.
We enjoy praising students and celebrating their success and value courtesy, politeness and respect for each other and the community in which we live.
We are a specialist Humanities College and work on developing good communication and thinking skills through all subject areas.
You are welcome to visit on one of our monthly Open Mornings to experience our forward thinking and innovative school in action.
I am proud to be the Headteacher at Claydon High School and I hope you feel enthused by our school and all we have to offer.
I look forward to meeting you.
Wednesday 19th March - Fun Run

Work Experience fortnight for Year 10 students will take place between 7th -18th July. Securing either a two week placement or two one week placements is the responsibility of the student. Finding a company which can accommodate students for Work Experience can be a lengthy process and often requires students to follow up letters and phone calls and be motivated and persistent in doing so! If you need support with this process then please see Mrs Garner. Deadline for placements to be secured is 18th March 2014.
Congratulations to the Drama Department and a fabulous cast who put on two magical performances of the Wizard of Oz on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th February. Sincere thanks to those staff, students and their families for supporting the production with after school rehearsals, set design and props and of course many thanks to those who came along to watch the shows.
During the winter and periods of bad weather, there may be a problem with transport and with the safety of the school site. In the event of a decision to close the school, details will be broadcast on local radio (BBC Radio Suffolk 103.9 FM and Heart Suffolk 97.1 & 96.4 FM) and also posted on the Suffolk County Council website: http://schoolclosures.suffolk.gov.uk/.
Where able and especially if we need to close the school early, we will try and send out a text message and email via Schoolcomms. If you would like to be communicated with Schoolcomms in this way then we must have your current mobile phone number and email address.
We offer a great variety of lunchtime and after school clubs throughout the week. These range from Basketball, Hockey and Table Tennis to Glee, Dance and Ukelele Clubs. For Years 10 & 11 we also offer GCSE support and revision clubs for selected subjects. To see the full range of what we offer, please click here.
Congratulations to our new Year 11 Senior Prefects who were appointed at the end of October. Mrs Skinner and Mr Sim were absolutely delighted by the confidence, passion and creativity presented by all of the candidates during their interviews.
