Mrs Hartley

Head Teacher / Prep 2 & 3 When I was at primary school, in the juniors, I was taught by an exceptionally strict teacher who constantly shouted at all the children.  This made me exceptionally unhappy and it eventually made me so ill that I didn’t go to school for 3 months. After 3 months a new Headmaster, Mr Howard, joined the school.  My mum gave him a day to settle in and then arranged a meeting for the next day.  When my mother and myself arrived, Mr Howard had made a sign for my chair with my name on it and next to my name he had drawn a love heart (I remember it like it was yesterday). He encouraged me to return to school, supported my transition, taught me lessons I had missed and was the perfect role model! He was firm but fair, kind and encouraging and was everything a teacher should be.  He inspired me to become a teacher, to be just as he was. I qualified the year he retired, I went back to my old primary school (where he was still the head 14 years later) and told him how he had inspired me to become a teacher, it was an emotional meeting for both of us!!! To this very day I carry out lessons and think to myself ‘Mr Howard would have liked that.’ I strive everyday to be an inspiration to my children, to be firm but fair, kind and encouraging, everything that Mr Howard was and to ensure that all of my children enjoy coming to school!

Mrs Waghorn

Deputy Head Teacher / Prep 7 & 8 Except for a few weeks when I was four, when I wanted to be a princess, I've always wanted to be a teacher. Joining Clarendon Cottage after 15 years of teaching has enabled me to reignite my passion and enthusiasm. I am free to teach in the best way for each child not how a document thinks all children should be taught. Having small class sizes ensures I have an in depth knowledge of every child in my care. I have a BSc (Hons) QTS in Maths and Education. I am a self-confessed geek; I love Science Fiction, Maths, puzzles, books, Disney, crafting and Lego (and if you ask the children – coffee!). Whilst I have only been a teacher at the school for the last 2 years, I have been a part of the school, as a parent, for 7 years. I chose this school for my own son and I am very proud of the choice I made for him.

Mrs Webb

SENCO / Prep 4 I went into teaching because it gives me the chance to be creative and spontaneous with the children. I have been teaching for 13 years and even now every day is still different, it’s not a job where you watch the clock. The days just fly by. If anyone ever asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up the only thing I ever said was "I want to be a teacher" there was never any other option. I love working at Clarendon because of the small class sizes and the caring, family environment. I am able to spend quality time with each child to help them achieve their goals rather than feel like I am spread too thinly amongst a huge class. 

Miss Brookes

Prep 5 & 6 I chose to be a teacher because I love the feeling I get when I see that look on a child’s face when a certain topic or challenge that I have been teaching clicks with them. Helping a pupil to understand a complicated topic and expand their breadth of knowledge is something I have always found extremely rewarding. I also love how I can share my own passions with my pupils and inspire them to become passionate about things they love! Clarendon Cottage Prep School really does have a big family feel to it; the relationships between staff, children and parents make coming into work a real pleasure and something I always look forward to. It is also lovely to see how the children are all so close all the way throughout the school, not just in their individual year groups.
