Lex Devine, our Founder
Clayesmore was founded in 1896, by Lex Devine. A man ahead of his time in terms of his vision for education. His guiding principle was to offer ‘an all-round education’; he understood the importance of a traditional academic education but he also recognised that, without a strong foundation of values and attitudes, it was nothing. That ethos remains at the heart of a Clayesmore education today.
