Outstanding Claverham, thanks

Congratulations Claverham Community College for your fantastic Ofsted report in all fields

Well deserved - and it has always been the children’s behaviour and discipline of the school, alongside it’s good teaching and exam successes that we as a family have held in great esteem.

It is a tough world to bring children up in with many challenges ahead of them, but to be of good character and polite and pleasant to others with good manners is so important and stands out in society.

We as parents went to Claverham - many years ago I hasten to add - but it was and always has been a very good school from all aspects.

We are delighted that our son Oliver, who went to Claverham and obtained very good marks in his GCE’s there, then went on later to study at Sussex University where he has just gained a First Class honours in maths with computer science

He has immediately been offered an internship at Siemens in Oxford in clinical imagery which he started on July 1. A brilliant career start for him.

Well done Claverham for offering children such a good grounding in education and life skills! Keep up the good work.

Mary Boorman and family
