Outdoor/enrichment education

Clay Hill School believes in creating an individual learning package around a young person, not in getting pupils to ‘fit in’ to a pre-existing timetable. If a pupil has a strong interest in a particular subject field, we will look to bring in specialist external tuition for them in that area.
