Clayesmore School

Combined Co-Education School in Blandford Forum, Dorset

Clayesmore doesn’t stand still. In an ever-changing and challenging world, we strive to shape an all-round education which will not only see our students achieve academic and career success but one which also helps them to develop into confident, adventurous and compassionate young adults.

Clayesmore is trailblazing new thinking in modern independent education.

Clayesmore is a true educational community where dedicated and innovative teachers support students to achieve their personal best, wherever their passions lie. We don’t measure success purely on grades achieved or university places gained. At Clayesmore, we measure our success on developing young adults who identify their goals and work hard to reach them; whether that’s studying at a leading university, starting their own business, getting into art or music school, pursuing sports, studying agriculture or becoming a fashion designer! We simply want every one of our pupils to do the very best they can in their chosen field.
