We’re renowned for our “Amazing Learning happens in the Good Struggle space” – pedagogy. We are home to Claremont Football Academy (for girls and boys) and provide elite 1-2-1 cricket coaching. Our Performing Arts team works out of a professional standard studio theatre offering LAMDA qualifications to Gold Standard, fostering an unusually progressive approach to the performing arts: focusing on diversity.


Claremont School is a community that values, above all else, kindness and a warm consideration for one another. We are not a stuffy or pretentious school, neither are we hierarchical, nor autocratic, in our thinking or our manner. We welcome people from as many walks of life as possible. We all have our small part to play, we all contribute to making the community what it is and share in its successes and shortcomings; we understand that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

GCSEs in 20 subjects. A Levels in 19 subjects and BTECs in Business, Dance, Media and Physical Education.
