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.

Best results ever!

2015: 69% 5 A*- C including English and Maths

Congratulations Year 11 on a fantastic set of results which you richly deserve. I am delighted that your dedication to learning throughout the past five years has been rewarded collectively with our best ever result!  As well as celebrating exam results, I would also like to pay tribute to the contribution you have made to school life in sport, music, drama, art and the many other areas of achievement and creativity in which you have excelled. I wish you all the very best with the next stage of your education and training and look forward to seeing you at our Presentation Evening in December.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for their fantastic support and to highlight the hard work and commitment of all the teachers, staff, governors and wider community that has contributed to our success this year and helped students on their journey.

Well done to you all.

Mrs Skinner



Happy Holidays!

We wish all our students, parents/carers and staff a great summer and we look forward to seeing students back to school on Thursday 3rd September 2015.



We are currently recruiting for an Assistant Student Manager (part-time) and Learning Support Assistants (full and part-time). Please click on the ‘Vacancies’ page for more details. 


School Uniform Update

A letter has been emailed today informing parents/carers that our official uniform suppliers now stock trousers that are in line with our uniform code. Many parents/carers will seek trousers from alternative suppliers but unfortunately a significant majority of these trousers do not meet our required standards. Please click here to access a copy of the letter which provides more details.

Many thanks to the local residents who joined us for this year's Community Tea Party. Our guests had a lovely afternoon chatting, eating lots of delicious sandwiches and cakes and listening to music and songs performed by our talented students.


Year 11 Prom

What a fabulous night! Year 11 looked amazing and a great time was had by all. The pictures are now available to view (please can parents/carers check their email for further details on how to do this). You will all be using the same login so you cannot order prints but you will be able to print your own copies at home.


Claydon’s Got Talent

Thanks to all who took part and supported back stage with the ‘Claydon’s Got Talent’ shows. All the acts were fantastic and it was great to see the hard work and effort in auditions and rehearsals rewarded with some stunning performances on the nights. Well done!
