Sponsored Content: Claremont opens new Early Years and Key Stage One building

This is the latest chapter in an impressive period of growth and expansion for the School. Over the last 10 years the school has doubled in size with the opening of a new Senior School in Bodiam in 2010. With that growth has followed the development of fantastic facilities at both school sites. The Bodiam site has been completely transformed and the Prep School site is now following suit.  The School changed ownership in 2018 and is part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), a group of 50 schools from all around the globe. Their collaboration with ISP is a key component of their recent success.

The School Principal Giles Perrin explains “Over the last 3 years in particular we have really accelerated. ‘Back to back ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspections, wonderful new facilities at both sites, most notable a Performing Arts Centre, a multitude of new learning areas at Bodiam and now this great facility here in St Leonards. We will move the top year in Nursery into some of the new rooms. We have over 100 families in our Nursery from all over Hastings, St Leonards and the surrounding area. The staff and children cannot wait to get started”. 

We are incredibly proud of the way in which the School has managed the complexities of the last year and the cohesiveness and warmth that exists in our community. The opening of this amazing building is another tangible expression of the progress and growth of our school, which is getting better all the time. This is an incredibly exciting time to be living and working in our town. We employ over 180 local people, educate over 600 local children, and 70 overseas children; it is really exciting to be part of a thriving school in a thriving area of the country”.

There are plenty of opportunities to come and visit Claremont’s Nursery, Prep and Senior school sites, either during ‘Open House Week’ from 17th-22nd May, or by simply contacting the school directly to book a private tour.
