About Clayesmore School

Providing a seamless, ‘all-through’ education in rural Dorset, Clayesmore is a beautiful school for siblings to attend together. A smooth transition from Prep to Senior School ensures a secure educational journey which in turn develops confidence and the motivation to study. Clayesmore Senior School has been deemed ‘excellent’ across the board following a recent Independent Schools’ Inspectorate inspection that covered pupils’ achievements, quality of teaching and quality of boarding. Impressive A-level and GCSE results are made all the more remarkable because of an all-ability intake, while sixth formers continue to have the pick of the UK’s leading universities. There is also an abundance of extra-curricular activities and excellent facilities including a well-equipped sports centre, heated pool and all-weather hockey pitches. The school has its own art department in a separate village location and its own purpose built music department which offers quality tuition and opportunities to perform. The school is proud of its association with HM Forces and offers a number of service bursaries. Other academic, art, music, sporting and all-rounder scholarships are also available. Clayesmore is continually developing and a recently opened £3.4 million Business School and boarding house have further enhanced this outstanding school. Excellent teaching, Learning Support provision (including a CReSTeD listing) and English tuition for international students means the school was recently described by The Good Schools Guide as ‘probably what a boarding school should be - not oversized, caring, happy and successful across all ability levels’.
