Clifton College

Clifton College boys are confident, self-disciplined, courteous, capable and well-rounded individuals who are encouraged to make the most of every opportunity on offer at our school.

Whether in the classroom, on the stage or on the sports fields, our boys work in an environment of excellence and rigour. Every boy is encouraged to involve himself to the full in order to ensure that he makes the most of all that the College has to offer.
Balanced, Confident Individuals

Clifton College boys benefit from individual care and attention that small classes bring and they learn in well-equipped and stimulating environments. Experienced teachers, the use of advanced educational technology and the ability to employ an independent, innovative, modern and creative methodology mean that our boys are exposed to a dynamic academic programme in which they are challenged constantly to achieve their very best.

Clifton College boys write the Independent Examination Board examinations in Grade 9 and Grade 12 and are well equipped to take on the challenges of tertiary education. We realize that our boys will be living in a global environment and we provide a world class education so that they are able to excel in their lives after school.
