10 breathtaking photos that show the beauty of Clifton College

Sometimes, while going about our busy school or working day, we can forget how fortunate we are to be surrounded by the historic buildings and grounds here at Clifton College. We all have our favourite parts; it could be the imposing rosary window of the Chapel, as it glistens in the summer sunlight, or the freshly cut grass on the Close, which always looks impressively pristine. Perhaps it could be the carved details, gorgeously rich in history, of our iconic Memorial Arch or the luxuriously dark wooden ceiling of the Percival Library met by the twinkling of lights that drape over its bookcases.

Whichever part of this school is your favourite, it’s all too often blurred into the background of the hustle and bustle of busy daily life. So, to remind ourselves just how stunning this site is, we’ve put together 10 breathtaking photos that show the beauty of Clifton College.
