The Curriculum

We teach a rich curriculum based on our understanding of how children learn. We run a rigorous preparation programme for grammar and independent school examinations at 11+, and we are specialists at teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Games & The Arts

We are passionate about competitive sport, music, art and drama. Our permanent home, a three-storey Georgian building, is adjacent to Bushy Park and the Little Gym, and includes a performance studio for dance and drama.

Pastoral Care

Clarence House is a ‘home from home’: a small school offering outstanding pastoral care. We meet the needs of modern working families, with a full mini-bus service, a breakfast club, and an optional after-school programme, which includes sport, societies and a homework club.

Scholarships available

Scholarships worth up to 50 per cent remission of fees are offered based on performance in our entrance assessments.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

When a pupil creates something truly excellent they are transformed. Mediocre work, ‘just good enough’ work, no longer seems quite good enough. At Clarence House we teach fewer topics in greater depth, giving out girls the opportunity to create multiple drafts and polish their work until it shines. And we are passionate about teaching every Clarence House girl that the key to excellence is any field is grit: hard work, perseverance and a willingness to respond to constructive feedback.

Outstanding Characteristics

  • We are a small school, meaning every girl receives individual attention
  • We are a STEM. specialist, with a dedicated science laboratory and a ‘maker space’ for building models, robots and prototypes
  • We focus on developing grit
