Welcome to Clarence!

Message from the Interim Head

A very warm welcome to Clarence International School, a preschool nestled right in the heart of Omotesando, Tokyo. Clarence International School is a school where confidence, curiosity and creativity are carefully nurtured. 

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. Our motto 'Alis Grave Nil' perfectly describes our approach to teaching and learning. We encourage pupils to grow wings so that there are no limits to their learning and no obstacles they cannot overcome on their journey. Our Early Years curriculum sets high academic standards, whilst our emphasis on the arts and play-based learning ensures the children experience engaging, exciting delivery that encourages creativity, confidence and expression. 


I hope our website serves as an introduction to our daily life here at Clarence International School, however the best way to fully experience our unique learning environment and warm community is to come and spend some time with us. Please do call to arrange a tour, it would be a pleasure to show you around.


I look forward to meeting you.


Kirsten O'Connor 

Interim Head of School

Join us at Clarence International School as we welcome the summer and enjoy our 'Brilliant Books' themed Summer School. Our Summer School is designed to be fun, engaging, and acts as the perfect educational bridge leading to the start of the new academic year. Each week is based on a different book, and children learn new crafts, enjoy playing outdoors, engage in enriching literary and linguistic activities, and strengthen their academic knowledge immersed in English for the upcoming school year. 

Using our arts-focused curriculum, children will enjoy a fun-packed programme of craft-making, art, theatre, music and dance to experience the joys of summer. This will also give our students the opportunity to explore and enjoy some great story books.
