Clarence High School is a minority institution founded in 1914 by the Redwood brothers, Alfred and Walter. and named after their own school in Somerset, U.K. The founders' vision was to provide a sound education based on Christian principles which would result in an all round development of the student. It is to these British missionaries that the school owes its distinctive philosophy, which is based on and summed up in the words from the Holy Bible- " The reverence of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. " Therefore, in keeping with the vision of it's founders, Clarence High School strives to inspire it's students towards moral integrity and character development, giving them resources that will endure throughout life.

The pursuit of academic excellence has always been a major thrust, while the facilities provided ensure that physical development is realised. Besides, our students are exposed to an array of co- and extra- curricular activities giving them every opportunity to realize their potential. It is our purpose that the grounding provided here ensures that every Clarencian will mature into an adult who will prove his usefulness to and worth in society, living out a life which mirrors the school motto, "Our Utmost for the Highest."
A major step taken in faith has been the opening of a Special Needs Department in June 2004. A structured learning programme by trained professionals provides a loving and challenging environment where children with special needs are helped to develop socially, emotionally and intellectually to the maximum extent possible. Mainstreaming of these children, wherever possible, is a special feature of this programme.
The School has Mr. Benny Joseph at the helm, an ex-Clarencian who has very adroitly given the school a tremendous impetus to academic excellence, national fame from its quizzers, debaters and uniformed services without losing sight of that vision on which the school is sustained.
Under the guidance
of Mr. Benny Joseph we have a team of coordinators who help in
the smooth functioning of the school and they are as follows:
