Clarence High School

Clarence High School, Bangalore

Clarence High School, a Christian minority institution founded in 1914 by the British Missionaries, Alfred and Walter Redwood, and named after their own school in Somerset, UK. The School was established with a vision to foster the complete and wholesome intellectual, spiritual, moral, physical and social development of every child, based on Christian values. In 1920, the school acquired 2.5 acres of land in Richards Town, Bangalore. Starting with 17 children in Infants & Std.1, the visionaries worked hard to bring the school to her current standing to nearly 2000 children.

A Special Needs School was also founded in 2004 and caters to children with mild to moderate disabilities, learning disorders, attention disorders and behavioural problems. The Special Needs Section follows the curriculum offered by the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS). Apart from Academics the school offers programmes for children such as music and speech therapy. The children enjoy activities like gardening, art and craft, aerobics and sports. The children are also taught pre-vocational skills.

The school aims to provide high quality education based on Biblical values, and follows the ICSE and ISC curricula. For more than a 100 years, Clarence has been at the forefront of a great venture – to build good citizens for the nation and for the world.  Dr Jerry George Mathew is currently the principal of Clarence High School.
