Welcome to Clarence!

Message from the Head

I wish you 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

Join us as we spend 3 days intensively exploring the world of architecture! We will learn to see buildings in new ways, appreciate the designs of famous artists and discover how the buildings which house us can also be true works of art. 


This half term holiday school has been designed to give children an exciting introduction into building design. Tokyo is an amazing city, full of incredible structures and we hope to open our student's minds to the wonders of architecture and help them to appreciate our daily concrete jungle even more!

Overcoming COVID-19

We are taking all necessary measures to ensure that our pupils and the whole Clarence community

remain safe and informed.
