Clifton College enjoys magnificent surroundings in an historic setting, but combines this with the most up-to date of modern facilities.
Our boarding houses provide a comfortable, safe and secure home-from-home for your son or daughter, where they will form close bonds and friendships that will last a lifetime.
We have two boarding houses in the Preparatory School. These are Pooles and Hartnells. They are run by a dedicated team of caring and professional staff, including a House Master or House Mistress and tutors. The matron acts like a surrogate mother to the children. They know the whereabouts of every item of clothing, provide enormous emotional support, and will be a constant fixture in the pupil’s life.
We offer full, weekly or flexible boarding options to suit the needs of increasingly busy parents, and parents can are encouraged to pick up the phone or email their children whenever they want.
