Welcome to Clarence!

Message from the 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 is a vital decision for the future of your child. 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. The Early Years curriculum we employ sets high academic standards for our pupils whilst the emphasis on the arts and play-based learning ensures these standards are met through engaging, exciting delivery that encourages creativity, confidence and expression. 


I hope this site 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 wonderful community is to come and spend some time with us. Please feel welcome to call and arrange for a tour, it would be a pleasure to show you around.


I look forward to meeting you! 


Daniel Barrett-Wood 

Head of School


Abracadabra! Zimzalabim! Our spring school is all about magic and mystery this year and is open to all young witches and wizards. 


Are you a whiz on a broomstick or more than just a muggle? Come along and discover a world of potions and spells and fantastic creatures!


During the week the children will read magical stories, perform mysterious experiments and learn the secrets of optical illusions. This exciting week aims to challenge the children's understanding of the world and develop their knowledge of science as well as flexing their communication and literacy skills. For good measure we have added a host of creative crafts to the cauldron and mixed in some sports and games! 


We hope to see you there!

Spring Intensive Phonics Programme

This spring, Clarence International School will be offering a special 1-week Intensive Phonics Programme to enable pupils to solidify basic reading and writing skills . After completion of this programme, children will be better able to match sounds to letter strings and blend sounds together to read longer words. They will then use and reinforce this phonic understanding by writing their own texts, extending their knowledge and understanding of basic punctuation and grammar.
