Mrs Clare Mee 


Deputy Head of Prep School, The Royal School 

I have been a member of The Royal School Community for ten years, as a teacher and as a parent. I became Deputy Head in September 2022 and my role means I support Dr Alexander in the day to day running of the school as well as taking responsibility for the academic progress and attainment of each child in the Prep School; from reaching milestones in Little Sailors to ensuring a thorough academic transition for our Prep 6 pupils into our Senior School. A strong connection with our parent body is key to a successful experience for our young learners. Our door is always open, and we value the partnership with our parents. Our staff are committed and passionate, they are always willing to go above and beyond and the feeling of teamwork at The Royal makes it a very special place to work. 

With a Masters in English and Creative Writing, I take a great interest in the English curriculum and the extra-curricular opportunities that go alongside it; I am passionate about children’s literature and developing a lifelong love of reading in our pupils. Our Future Ready curriculum, along with the roll out of personal devices means we're taking exciting leaps forward in terms of technology. However, I stongly believe that children who find a passion for reading a breadth of literature will become very successful as well as rounded and compassioante individuals. 

Teaching at The Royal Prep School is exciting and rewarding; we spend plenty of time outdoors in our wonderful grounds and approach our curriculum as creatively as possible. The extra curricular opportunities mean there is something for everyone, and it's always with the intention of discovering a passion or a skill, and building confidence. Our children display curiosity and a strong commitment to their learning; they have a fantastic sense of fun, excellent manners and are genuinely a joy to spend time with. 

Come and meet our delightful children and dynamic staff; we’d love to tell you more and show you around our lovely school.
