About Clonard

1. How long has Clonard been around?
We have been helping parents to teach their children at home for over 20 years. Clonard began by providing material to parents to help them to teach their children to read before going to school.  Virginia Tyrrell, a highly qualified and experienced teacher began producing phonetic reading books and the business grew organically from there. When homeschooling became legal in 1996 Clonard began to supply parents with full curriculum packs to teach their children at home.

2. Where do Clonard’s strength lie?
We feel our strength lies in the quality of support, service and educational material that we provide.  The examinations are set and marked by our qualified teachers so our reports are an accurate external assessment of learners and can be used to enrol into a mainstream school. We take great pride in the high standards that we maintain in our educational material, examinations and service from our knowledgeable and friendly team.
