St Clare’s School Makes The Grade

, / 3331

If you ask most parents why they chose to send their child to a private school, the answer is because they believe that their child will a) receive a better standard of education, b) have better opportunities for future careers, c) be more disciplined and d) bene t from smaller pupil-teacher ratios.


Vale Life chats to Simon Antwis, Headmaster at St. Clare’s School in Porthcawl, to find out more.

Who does the school cater for?
We are a non-selective independent school for boys and girls aged 3 up to 18. We have many students leave our Sixth Form at the end of Year 13 who have been with us since their Nursery days.

St. Clare’s School has recently been able to celebrate its performance in the ALIS Value Added data report for 2017 A-Level exams.

What is ALIS?
ALIS (Advanced Level Information System) Value-Added analysis tells us how likely students are to achieve particular subject grades as they set out on the journey to post-16 qualifications, and is based upon a child’s average GCSE score and a baseline test. This data allows us to predict what A-Level results each of our students are likely to achieve and, at St. Clare’s, to aim to better those outcomes.

What does this actually mean for students?
This analysis shows that due to factors such as smaller class sizes, more individual attention and exceptional teaching at St. Clare’s, a student typically expected to achieve BBB grades is actually more likely to achieve ABB with us.
