At Claremont High School the school is organised into four colleges: Gold; Scarlet; Sapphire and Emerald with all pupils across the school in Years 7-11 wearing the corresponding college colour tie to further establish their sense of community and identity to their college.
Each college also has a charity attributed to them which has been voted for by the pupils and every year the students raise money for their chosen charity which has been both hugely successful in demonstrating the importance of community but also in building a sense of teamwork.
Each of the four colleges also uphold the values of the school through their assemblies and through the high expectations laid out by their College Lead who is a Senior Leader in the school.
College assemblies happen fortnightly and each are linked to the values of the school with many of these assemblies being presented by both staff and pupils who wish to continue to develop the ethos of the school community. There are many leadership opportunities for teachers across the school and pupils alike, as the assemblies focus on a range of important messages across themes such as, Protected Characteristics to Black History Month, Remembrance Day and Mental Health awareness week with both pupils; teachers and outside speakers coming in to both inspire and motivate our pupils.

This is a common theme throughout the school and is evidenced in the proud displays of the pupils' achievements in the glass display boards in the College Assembly hall.
Our College system encourages students and staff to:
