Behind The Scenes At Claires Court School In Maidenhead


With a strong track record on pastoral care, Claires Court is a school for families, where community is central to its ethos

Founded over 60 years ago by the Principals’ parents, Claires Court offers a diamond shape education providing a unique opportunity for girls and boys to be educated during their Junior and Senior years separately, coming together for trips, visits and sporting events, whilst its Nursery and Sixth Form pupils benefit from co-education.  

This is a school where pupils are encouraged to be the very best they can be and make a positive difference in everything they do. The curriculum extends far beyond the basics and students experience an education which equips them well for life in a changing, fast-paced and challenging world. 

Sb Classroom

The school has a strong and coherent learning philosophy, the Claires Court Essentials, which focuses on developing a variety of skills and behaviours that young people need to be successful learners. As they mature, pupils are expected to stretch themselves and push their own boundaries and limitations. 

Learning is brought to life outside the classroom and the school offers an exciting co-curricular programme designed to enrich students’ school lives, but also to teach valuable life skills such as perseverance and teamwork.  

At Claires Court, sport is for all students to enjoy whatever their ability and a huge variety of sporting activities are on offer. With its close proximity to the River Thames and local lakes, older students can opt to sail, kayak or canoe during games lessons twice a week. In fact the school has a strong rowing reputation with recent wins at Henley Royal Regatta and the British Rowing Championships cementing their national reputation.

The school’s values of responsibility, respect, loyalty and integrity are lived and breathed throughout the school community, encouraging students to develop a moral sense of worth and personal values which will hold them in such good stead in their lives to come.
