Why we love Clapham
Below are just a few of the super things that the children, parents and Ofsted inspectors have had to say about our school. You can download a copy of our school prospectus here: Clapham Terrace Primary School Prospectus
'Pupils behave well and feel safe at school.'
'The school has worked hard to develop a strong culture of shared expectations. These are exemplified by is mascot 'Clapham Carl', who can be found all round the school. Pupils understand and embrace the idea of being Caring, Achieving, Respectful Learners (CARL).'
'Pupils are responsible around the school and treat each other with respect and care. Older pupils help younger pupils, especially at break and lunch time'.
It’s fun. People are nice here. I like playing football.
“I like Mathletics because we win awards and print them off. It makes me think harder.”
Arjun - Year 5
Everything we do here is fair and success is celebrated but not boasted about. If there is ever a problem there is always someone to talk to. The teachers make every lesson as fun as possible for everybody.

I love doing my numeracy and literacy lessons and I really enjoy being in the playground as there are so many different activities you can do with the climbing wall, games, and climbing frame.

I love Clapham Terrace because it is a nurturing school that values diversity and community. Ruby has made lots of friends and so have I. Staff, parents and children work together to create a lively and fun place to learn.

It has the feel of a village school in the centre of a town
Parent to year 1 and Nursery pupils
Clapham Terrace is a great school where I have seen my son grow both academically and socially. Thanks to a dedicated staff and an active parent body, Clapham Terrace school stands out as both a place of learning and as a social community.

Because of the wonderful community it is and Clapham makes learning more fun.
Parent to year 3 and Reception pupils
I love our playground, especially the climbing frame and the climbing wall. I also like doing maths, learning to count on and count backwards. Reception was really good too because of all the playing and fun we had.
Sam, Yr 1
I like science because we get to do fun stuff like do experiments and write about what we found out in our science books. I also like all the discos where I can have fun with my friends and my mum and dad can talk to other mums and dads.
