A Warm Welcome to our Armed Forces Service Community, Children and Families.

Clearwater Academy is delighted to have children from our Armed Forces Community within our school.

We support and encourage our families and children to feel settled as part of our school and wider community.


Further assistance for Service families

Professional support and guidance is available to parents with admission queries from the Children’s Education Advisory Service (CEAS), part of the Ministry of Defence’s Directorate Children and Young People (DCYP). The CEAS provide valuable information on school admissions and many other education related matters and maintain a telephone and online helpline for parents of Service children with queries.
