About the School

So what makes Clifton Hall different from other schools? Well, we treat each pupil as an individual and we seek to personalise education so that each can benefit from being given the opportunity to shine.

Clifton Hall School will never contain more than 400 pupils and its Nursery will never contain more than 40. Pupils are taught in small classes and in small year groups. With this structure, we can discover talents, care and nurture, and help to assist in the development of character and self-belief. We see the student who is a talented ballet dancer in the same high regard as the student achieving an A at Advanced Higher in English in the same high regard as the junior pupil who has already attained Grade 8 on the violin.
