About us

The Clare School is a mixed, day Community Special School for pupils, from 3 to 19 years of age, with special needs usually associated with physical disabilities and/or sensory impairments. Many of the pupils also have complex medical needs and learning difficulties associated with their physical or sensory disabilities.

The school is funded by Norfolk County Council and under the Local Management of Schools scheme, it is responsible for managing all of its own educational activities and finance. Pupils attending The Clare School come from most areas of the County of Norfolk and from parts of North Suffolk. Door to door transport is provided daily as required.

It is set in pleasant grounds of several acres together with an Infant and Junior School on the Norwich Ring Road, offering easy access to both the city and the county.

The School caters for a diverse range of abilities across the whole school. Pupils have learning difficulties associated with their physical or sensory disabilities and teaching is organised to encourage progress as individuals.

All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level appropriate to their needs and are encouraged to develop an enquiring and active interest in their studies. Where possible, the curriculum is parallel to that of mainstream schools, with attention given to the additional and individual curriculum to develop personalised learning.

Please note: a request for a special or independent school must be formally made as part of the Education, Health and Care plan development process or annual review process.  Please see the Local Offer Admissions to specialist schools for more information about this.
