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.
As the exam season for Year 10 and Year 11 students rapidly approaches, we would urge students to be as prepared as possible. Students have been working very hard in lessons and extra support has been offered in the way of catch up and revision clubs. In addition to this the Maths and Science faculties have some excellent revision resources on their curriculum pages - click here for Maths, click here for Science.

The Reporters Club, along with selected Year 8 students, had a very productive day on Thursday 19th March, when they came off time-tabled lessons to spend the day planning, researching and writing news articles in order to create an online magazine for BBC School Report Day 2015.

Many congratulations to those students who took part in our annual Fun Run. The afternoon was a great success and the P.E. department would like to thank students, parents/carers and staff for their support. Students - please remember to bring your sponsorship money to the Finance Office by the end of term please. All monies raised will go towards a new trampoline.
We were thrilled to welcome the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to Claydon High School on Tuesday 17th March. The Orchestra performed to Year 7 & 8 students, along with over 450 visiting primary school students in the morning and held a two hour composition workshop with the high school students in the afternoon. Mrs Jenkins, Head of Arts and organiser of the event said "I am extremely proud of the way our students responded to the challenges set by the professional musicians. The final composition pieces shared at the end of the day were individual, creative and quite magical. It showed just how talented our students are. It was also wonderful to be able to share the day with so many primary school pupils. Hopefully the experience will have inspired many to begin learning a new instrument".
