Children swiftly become part of a solid friendship group and quickly assimilate to the Prep routines. They feel at home in no time at all, whether they join our day or boarding community and we love seeing the happy faces of our new pupils as they participate in lessons and activities throughout the day.

Clayesmore’s affairs are governed by the Council of Clayesmore, chaired, at the present time by Mr John Andrews, a lawyer and former parent.
The governors represent, between them, a considerable range of skills, interests, professions and backgrounds and include at the present time a number who are former pupils and parents. They all share a very deep commitment to the wellbeing of Clayesmore, its pupils, its staff, and its future. The full Council meets every term as do all its sub-committees.
