I am delighted to be the new Headteacher at Claydon High School. Whilst this is a big change for our learning community alongside our membership of the South Suffolk Learning Trust, what the school represents has not changed.
We have a very clear goal; to support our students in becoming the best they can be. We believe that a close partnership between home and school, which focuses on our core values and upholds our high expectations, will ensure that our learners are confident, happy and well equipped to be successful in their future lives.
Our school offers a welcoming learning environment where students are well supported and challenged to achieve their very best.
Please do come and visit us to see for yourselves what Claydon High School has to offer you.

This week has seen the start of the formal exam season for Year 11 students and they have made an excellent start to these. They are smiling as they enter the hall, feeling confident about their preparation, and have come out smiling too which boosts their confidence about other exams to follow. The school has a very purposeful feel; not only are Year 11 revising for and taking exams but our other years are too and are conducting themselves very impressively.

Form groups were set the task of producing a giant tetrahedron. The purpose of this was to show what we can do together, to be the best we can be, by using the principles of STEM as the driving force. Each tutor group was given enough dowel and elastic bands to make between two and four mini tetrahedrons. These in turn made a medium sized tetrahedron to be placed together to form one big one! Tutor groups had 20 minutes to build their mini tetrahedrons following some simple instructions given in an assembly. Year 9 Prefects helped Years 7 & 8 and the Year 10 Student Leadership Team constructed the giant final tetrahedron.
Despite some wet and wild weather, this task was completed in less than 60 minutes, split across the week. It just goes to show that from a simple concept, something bigger and more powerful can be the end result! Well done to all who took part.

On 1st June 2017, Claydon High school, East Bergholt High School and Hadleigh High School joined together to form a multi-academy trust - The South Suffolk Learning Trust. The three strong schools will be working together to share best practice within the partnership as well as supporting other schools in Suffolk. The South Suffolk Learning Trust (led by an experienced board of local trustees) intends to grow and support the learning of Suffolk youngsters aged between 3 and 19 and add positively to improving life chances of Suffolk children through effective collaboration.
Headteachers Sarah Skinner, Colin Turner and Caroline Gibson are delighted to be formalising partnerships across schools and enabling an even wider number of children to reach their full potential.
