Clifton High celebrates inspection success

In the spring of 2016 we underwent a rigorous and thorough ISI inspection. The findings of the report have recently been announced and we are delighted with the final outcome which was truly excellent.

The inspection confirmed Clifton High School’s position as a leading, fully co-educational, selective, independent school in Bristol; the first in the South West and the only one in Bristol to operate the Diamond Edge Model of education whereby pupils in Years 7-9 are taught in single-sex groups in core subjects.

Head of School, Dr Alison Neill says:  “An in-depth report of this calibre has given us the impetus to look ahead as we move on to the next stage in our development.  It sets the bar very high and confirms the standards and expectations which we shall continue to drive forward. No school can stand still, and as we prepare our young men and women to go out into an ever-changing and dynamic landscape, we must continue to adapt and respond in order that they are ready for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of them.”

The full inspection report can be found here.

In recognition of the hard work and commitment of all at Clifton High School, Dr Alison Neill invited all pupils from nursery to sixth form, together with staff and governors to join her on a special day of celebration at Longleat House and Safari Park. 

Head of School, DrAlison Neill went on to say:  “I very much wanted to say thank you to all pupils, staff, both teaching and support and Governors for their hard work and commitment in achieving such an excellent inspection report; Longleat organised a very special day for us which provided a unique opportunity for us to celebrate together.”
