At Clifton, we believe in Pupil Voice! On Monday 3rd October, we held our Pupil Elections; an opportunity for all pupils to apply for positions across the school. Applicants spoke in front of the whole school, or to their peers in class, about why they thought they would be suitable for the role they had chosen. All pupils and staff anonymously voted, votes were counted and pupils were elected. Watch this space for photos of our newly appointed School Council, Eco Committee and Sports Crew. Well done to all pupils involved!

Friday 30th September 2022- The whole school enjoyed a live performance of 'The Sword in the Stone' delivered by Image Musical Theatre. Some of our own budding actors joined the fun!

We have spaces in some year groups. If you would like to visit the school please phone 01335 342473.
