At Clifton College, we aim to provide a caring and supportive atmosphere, a home-from-home, in which your child is encouraged to seize each opportunity and fulfill their potential.
After School Care operates from 4:05pm pm until 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. Children can stay and play with their friends and have some tea before being picked up.
Our aim is for the children to have fun, socialise with their friends and relax. They are encouraged to develop their ideas through both outdoor and indoor play, and can choose activities, including arts and crafts, board games, reading, free play, computers, dancing, music and group games.
While Clifton has an Anglican foundation, children of all faiths are welcome and special arrangements can be made for their religious needs if required.
Clifton has always had a strong Jewish tradition and Jewish pupils in the Preparatory School can attend the School’s own synagogue, receive Hebrew instruction and preparation for Bar Mitzvah, if parents so wish.
Health and Food
The health and safety of our children is of paramount importance. A school nurse is present during the school day and staff members undertake First Aid training every three years.
We eat in the College dining halls, but at a different time to the Upper School pupils. A cafeteria system ensures there is a wide choice available, including vegetarian and kosher options. Teachers sit at the ends of tables in order to ensure children eat properly.
