The Clayesmore Society

The Clayesmore Society


When your child joins Clayesmore, you become part of a unique 'family' of current and former parents, former pupils, staff, governors and friends of the school. The Clayesmore Society is a way to bring all these groups of Clayesmore connections together through social and networking events. The Society is a way to further the interests of the school in as wide a way as possible and incorporates a variety of other school organisations including the Friends of Clayesmore, Prep School Parents' Association and the Old Clayesmorian Society.

Social and networking events are organised for everyone to enjoy. Some of these are run by the Society’s constituent parts (The Old Clayesmorian Society, Friends of Clayesmore and Prep School Parents’ Association). We have also nurtured links with local businesses to offer special discounts to members.
