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

BBC School Report Day 2014


Claydon High School students are making the news – for real – on Thursday 27th March 2014 as they take part in BBC News School Report Day 2014. Volunteer students (taken largely from Years 7-10) who regularly meet in an after school club will give up time-tabled lessons in order to produce and complete an online newspaper based on events in and around Claydon High School.

The BBC School Report News Day is a great opportunity for these students to put into practice the writing and reporting skills they have learnt in English lessons and clubs whilst working under pressure and to a tight deadline! Please ensure you visit the BBC School Report Page after the event to see how they got on.

Lunchtime and After School Activities

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
