Letter from the Headteacher

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.

Sarah Skinner

Latest News

Uniform Update

In response to feedback from a number of you we have been exploring the possibility of changing our uniform supplier for September 2014, including consultation with the Parent Forum. However, we have recently received this unexpected message from Touchline, our current supplier:

"Thank you for offering the opportunity to discuss supply but we have made a commercial decision to move away from in-store uniform retail and would only offer online sales going forward. We will put all CHS items on sale on the online store and in the shop and once cleared will not order further stock. Can I please ask that you communicate this to parents. We do thank you for using Touchline over the last 4 years."

Recommendations for a new supplier will be presented to the Governing Body and we will do our best to appoint a suitable company as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime. If you have any further suggestions about what you would like from a school uniform supplier (for example: a shop, online sales, car parking, free alterations) please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

G P Alcock

Deputy Headteacher
