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.

On 5th February a group of 40 students were joined by a fantastic band from Guildford called Kissed and Crowned and a team from I.E.M. (Industry Education in Music) to take part in a Rock Band Workshop and concert. Students from across all year groups split into groups to form separate bands and spent the day composing original pop music from scratch. With a very tight deadline, this was a huge challenge but our talented students worked extremely hard, using advice and guidance from the professionals to come up with some impressive and original material that was performed at a concert on the very same evening!
Many thanks to parents/carers for their support and well done to all who took part.
Well done to the whole school community for creating 33 amazing hampers which were donated to the Chapman Centre in Ipswich, to be redistributed to those in need locally at Christmas. Thanks also to parents/carers and staff for the donations from home, your generosity is very much appreciated.
Many thanks to all those parents/carers and staff who supported the PTA Grand Christmas Draw. They raised a magnificent £1125 which will be distributed among departments in school to go toward resources and activities for students. Sincere thanks to all the local businesses and organisations who donated prizes.
Congratulations to the ‘Throwback Festival’ team whose well researched and very detailed plans for a 1980s & 90s themed festival saw them crowned overall winners of the WOW Week Challenge Cup!

Your dedication, teamwork, leadership and commitment was clearly demonstrated in the fantastic ideas and portfolios of work that you produced over the course of the event.

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.
