AIM: To produce young people who are well mannered and well spoken, self disciplined and possessed of good habits especially punctuality and tidiness, honest in thought, word and deed. They should be able to think for themselves, unselfish, in the sense that they think of the good and welfare of others as well as that of themselves. They should be properly adjusted in the physical, spiritual, moral and social aspects of their development and adequately informed in the subjects that comprise their curriculum.

Many students live up to 25 miles from school, and travel by public transport daily to school. As a result, many students arrive at school late. The Blue Liner school bus assist some students on a daily basis but the population is too large for this single bus. This therefore means that students travel to school by any means possible; hence late comings are creating a problem. Our new principal is currently experimenting with various ways to get the students to arrive in time. The students are now making the effort to get to school on time. What ever the Principal is doing is motivating students to now arrive for devotions on time.
One of the Principal's strategy is to highlight positive behaviours in the school community on a regualar basis. Students are now getting praises more frequently and high perfomers are acknowledged in morning devotions on Mondays, Tuesday and Fridays. Wednesdays and Thursdays are reserved for house and grades devotion respectively.
A new perfomance goal is the honour roll system. Clarendon College has adopted it and very soon students will be able to seem their names on the honour roll in Stuart Hall as they assemble for general assembly.
Stay tuned to the new developments at Clarendon College.
