Wrap around care included from 7:30am until 6:00pm everyday at Clifton College Preparatory School

The school day starts at 8:30am, but parents may drop their child at School from 7:30am at no extra charge. For those arriving at 7:30am the wrap around care includes breakfast as well as the opportunity for children to play and relax ahead of the school day.

Lessons finish at 4:05pm, after which, day pupils can be collected or can go back to their House, where they can do prep, take part in a wide range of activities and clubs with their friends and enjoy a light tea, all as part of the inclusive wrap around care provided. Parents can collect children any time up to 6:00pm. 

At Clifton College Preparatory School we understand that our families lead busy lives, that’s why we offer flexible wrap around care as part of the school day. 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.
