Physical Education is a key part of the curriculum, not only for competitive sport, but for promoting a healthy lifestyle through the enjoyment of sport and exercise.
The range of sports on offer at Clifton High is already impressive and we look forward to building on this for our boys in the Upper school. Pupils get a chance to take part in a wide range of sports as they progress through the school: hockey, football, netball, swimming, gymnastics, dance, tennis, rounders, athletics, indoor tennis, badminton, rugby, basketball, volleyball, fitness training activities, badminton, table tennis, cricket, trampolining, squash, use of exercise machines at a local gym and rock climbing.
We also enjoy good links with the following clubs who use the facilities at Coomble Dingle as well. Many of the children at the school play for these clubs and benefit from this relationship.

Clifton Ladies Hockey Club
Rockleaze Rangers Football Club
