Claires Court is a family school, providing a high quality education for nearly 1100 local young people aged 3 to 18 years. As a broad ability day
school, it is the only one in the Thames Valley to offer families a diamond shape education.
This allows a unique opportunity for boys and girls to be educated during their Junior and Senior years separately, but come together for trips and visits, whilst Nursery and Sixth Form pupils benefit from a co–educational provision.
Founded in 1960 by the current Principals’ parents, Claires Court has roots in Maidenhead stretching back to 1861. Starting with just 19 pupils, the school has grown to become the largest private day school in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead with 55% of children on roll resident within RBWM. It plays a significant part supporting events in the local community and is the RBWM’s tenth largest employer with over 160 of the 300 staff living locally.
Presently situated at Ray Mill Road East (Senior Boys), off Cannon Lane at Ridgeway (Junior Boys) and at College Avenue (Junior and Senior Girls, Nursery and Sixth Form), the aim of this project is to bring the whole school together onto the Ridgeway site with a nominal capacity of 1190 places.
