About Creative Hare

Teacher & Writing Mentor

Meet Clare Lloyd

I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Durham university and I achieved my PGCE qualification as a school teacher from Plymouth Marjon in 2010. For 10 years I taught in both state and leading independent schools in southwest London which has given me a tremendous wealth of teaching knowledge and experience.

In 2019, I swapped London life for Devon whilst continuing to teach children remotely. I know that opportunities for increased attention are scarce in a school environment and that is why I founded Creative Hare.

I teach small groups of gifted and able writers, nurturing and growing their talent and passion for literacy-focused activities.

As a mentor, the best part of my job is to create a warm, trusting connection with your child within a small group setting. I encourage every child to feel relaxed, to enjoy the writing process and to share without judgement, as I believe this is key to maximising the potential of each individual.

Children are natural storytellers and it is a joy to witness the personal satisfaction and fulfilment children feel from writing stories of which they have created.

Alongside my mentoring I provide consultations for parents supporting their child through the 11+. Tutoring children for the 11+ has given me an indepth experience of the importance of unlocking confidence and motivation in a holistic way. 


1. Authentic Positivity - Always be encouraging with a positive voice

2. Active Listening - What children say is important for their development, confidence and makes children feel heard

3. Be a knowledge guide - Use your knowledge to guide the child on an individual basis

4. A Balanced approach - Creativity, Empathy and structure are equally important to developing individuality

5. Creative Confidence - Empowering children to explore their creativity by considering new ideas and questioning their assumptions
