Clifton College

Clifton College is a co-educational boarding and day school for 3-18 that encourages a lust for life in all that it offers; set in grand, historic buildings and offering a modern, outstanding education in the heart of Bristol. Excellent academic results are testament to the School’s success. In 2022, 54% of A Level grades were A* or A. 51% of GCSE grades were A*, 8 or 9, and 69% were grade 7 or A and above. We place equal importance on personal growth and independence.

“The school has played an enormous part in shaping the young men and women we are today.” (Former pupil)

The core values of the College remain unchanged since it first welcomed pupils in 1862: intellectual agility, a capacity for boldness, social confidence, a sense of fun, strength and decency of character. Today the College continues to offer a tailored education for each child, delivered through exceptional pastoral care, inspirational teaching, diverse and co-curricular activities and excellent facilities.

The College has a magnificent Grade II listed Chapel and Synagogue, as well as its own purpose-built theatre and music school. Superb sporting facilities include The Close and the 90 acre Beggar’s Bush site, Bristol’s largest outdoor sports complex providing the latest sporting facilities.
