The school has grown steadily since, adding the Joyce Grenfell Centre in 1979, named after one of our distinguished performing arts alumna and later the sports hall in 1999. A new sixth form centre and the Sir Sydney Camm science and technology building followed in 2019, which provides outstanding facilities across subjects from physics to design technology and textiles.
Now we are a thriving school of around 1,000 pupils, still governed by our original principles of creating young people that are ‘strong in understanding’ through a character quality education, where they are supported to achieve their utmost potential. Now a non-denominational school, we welcome pupils from all faiths and none, and are looking forward to celebrating a centenary of excellence in 2022.
Heritage open day
On one day every September we open our school gates to the public in celebration of Heritage Open Day. It’s a wonderful way to absorb the fascinating heritage we have here at Claremont. Event details for our 2023 event will be available in the summer.
