LIFE AT SENIOR GIRLS
In September 2017 Claires Court welcomed a new Head of Senior Girls, Mrs Margaret Heywood.
Well known to the pupils and parents (many of whom she taught), Margaret is a familiar face at the school, having worked as part of the girls’ community at the College Avenue site for 33 years. She joined the school as the teacher in charge of PE in September 1984 when it was known as Maidenhead College for Girls.

Jessica, Year 10: "I try to get involved in school life as much as possible. I think the teaching here is really good - all the teachers are really nice, good at explaining, and are very approachable. It's a very nurturing environment and the school has a really nice feel to it." Find out what other pupils think of life at Claires Court: https://www.clairescourt.com/meet-a-pupilRead more

Today we said a fitting goodbye to our Year 13 leavers who we will all miss greatly. They came in dressed up in fancy dress, took funny photos in a photo booth, and in their final assembly they watched a video with their old photos, videos and poems, and were presented with Claires Court cufflinks and charms. A BBQ and ice cream van rounded off a wonderful morning. We wish them all the best of luck for the rest of their exams and future, and ask that they stay in touch.Read more
