Clifton College Preparatory School offers wrap-around care from the ages of 2 to 13.

The school day starts at 8:30am, but parents may drop their child at School from 8:00am.

Lessons finish at 4:05pm, after which day pupils can be collected or can go back to their House, where they can do prep and have tea. Parents can then collect them any time before 7:00pm.

This flexible approach is important for busy families. In addition, day pupils may board occasionally, and the school’s flexible approach to this not only meets the needs of increasingly busy parents but also helps to enhance the 24-hour care ethos in which we all take pride.

Holiday care

Holiday courses are run at an additional cost by Clifton College Services Ltd.

We are delighted to offer an extensive programme of exciting, challenging and fun courses, providing a chance to try something new or enjoy a regular favourite.

For 5–7-year-olds, we generally offer half-day ‘taster’ courses in the main holidays, to give younger children an introduction to the focus of individual activities.

For 8–13-year-old children, we offer a wide range of activity courses. Grouped under headings of Adventure, Creative and Sport, each holiday offers a differing range of opportunities, all led by professional tutors, coaches and instructors.
