Clapham Manor Primary School

Belmont Road, London, SW4 0BZ


Clapham Manor Primary, situated in the heart of Clapham in the Borough of Lambeth, is a two-form entry primary school and nursery with capacity for 420 pupils. At its last inspection the school was judged Outstanding by Ofsted.

When walking around Clapham Manor Primary School’s three distinct buildings – the Victorian and the award-winning modern extension of the main school and the Forest School themed Nursery and secret garden – you see the physical manifestation of the seamless conjoining of traditional and cutting edge.  The school remains at the heart of the Clapham community because it preserves many traditions and plays infinite variations on them.  We strive, through our moto of ‘Growing Brighter Futures’ to ensure the community and children experience a base of solid academic learning wrapped up in education of the whole person for a 21st Century life.

Our staff team is made up of a wide range of experiences and disciplines and everyone is valued. We have high expectations of our pupils and each other and want to ensure that we provide the best possible environment and education so that our children can reach their potential in both their academic achievements and their knowledge and experience of life.

Ask parents, carers, and children why they chose Clapham Manor as their Primary School and you will hear about the old-fashioned virtues of outstanding teaching, our imaginative and enriching curriculum and about belonging to a friendly extended family – about being part of a story that they themselves are still writing.
