Clifton High School is a very special school. Founded in 1877 by visionaries with a belief in education for life, we have grown to be one of the leading schools in the south west, providing an excellent education for children from aged three to eighteen.
We are now a fully co-educational school, following the socially and academically beneficial Diamond Edge Model for years 7-9.
You can feel what a special place this is as you walk around the school. It is full of laughter and parents comment on the excellent relationships between teachers and pupils - relaxed but always respectful. The almost tangible rapport between adult and pupil creates an atmosphere where your child can develop happily and successfully.
We encourage all our young people to believe in themselves and to face challenges with confidence, determination and a sense of excitement. Your children learn to think for themselves, to do their very best and to care for others in school and in the wider world. They also discover their own talents and interests, whether academic, sporting, artistic or in performance.
This website cannot do more than give you a glimpse into what Clifton High School is all about and the education it gives your child. Do come and visit us; meet the teachers, pupils and the Executive; we look forward to showing you around.
