Clare House (part of IMPACT Multi Academy Trust) is a school with high expectations and high standards. We have high expectations of the children, whether that is applying themselves to their learning in the classroom, having good manners with everyone they meet or when taking part in one of the many opportunities outside the classroom. We value perseverance, hard work and a positive attitude. We instil the qualities that will prepare our children for success here, at secondary school and beyond.

As a staff we have high standards as well. We constantly ask ourselves, ‘would this be outstanding for my child?’ We strive to say ‘yes’ to this question in everything we do.

We are a community based school, with a family atmosphere. It is a school where every child is known as an individual and where our Governing Body, PTA and hugely supportive parent body play a central role in helping us to achieve what we want for our children; an outstanding education.
