FROM THE PRINCIPAL
At Clarendon Preparatory School, we view the educating of each little girl entering our care from all aspects of growth and development. Each child is afforded the opportunity of learning through many varied and different approaches and experiences. They gain knowledge by interacting with their peers and being able to learn in a hands-on way. The acquiring of life skills to enable them to face the challenges of the future is crucial.
Whilst the importance of the individual is emphasised, the need to nurture and develop social skills at this tender age is of paramount importance. We strive to develop the whole child, taking cognisance of the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual components of each one entrusted to our care.
The school strives to provide girls with a relevant and meaningful education of the highest standard. We provide a happy and secure environment, which promotes self-discipline and a spirit of inquiry within each learner. Girls are encouraged to think for themselves and become independent. Self-confidence and a good self-esteem are crucial for each child at this stage of their development.
Respecting the divergent cultures and differences that make up the Clarendon complement of girls, we are ever conscious of the transformation that is taking place within our country. We regard it as a privilege to be part of setting the pace in education.
Our main objectives for young children during their learning activities at school are to encourage them to learn through play in a happy and caring environment, and to become confident workers who are able to co-operate and concentrate when interacting with peers on a given task. The school upholds Christian values and adheres to a Bible based education. The faiths of all members of the community are respected.
A team of dedicated, qualified teachers is responsible for the education of the girls and to encourage them in all aspects of school life. The standard set by the Clarendon Schools for Girls is a commitment to offering the best quality in education.
Mutual support from parents is valued as it is essential for achieving our twofold aim of educating the girls for life and maintaining the ethos and high standards of the school.
Clarendon educates the women of tomorrow today.
Yours in education,
