Extra-curricular Clubs

There are over 100 extra-curricular clubs and societies at Clifton High School ranging from young contrarians, astronomy and animation to fencing, swimming and taekwondo. The clubs are split into three categories to ensure that pupils are developing into holistic individuals. The categories are:

  • Skills Development

  • Academic Progress

  • Individual Brilliance

We actively encourage children to partake in an activity from each area to ensure a range of skills are being developed. Pupils are encouraged to pursue their interests and follow their passions by taking up the many extra-curricular activities on offer. Our extra-curricular programme is fundamental to life at Clifton High School as we firmly believe this enriches and broadens the educational opportunities open to our boys and girls. Clubs and societies are open to children from Years 1-13 and take place before, during and after School.

We have unique partnerships with sporting associations such as Bristol Rugby, the Lawn Tennis Association, the University of Bristol and Bristol Henleaze Swimming Club. The programmes that they run within the School provide our pupils with elite coaching and player pathways in to participation up to international standard, drawing links with our growing Talented in Sport programme. This cannot be found in any other School within Bristol.

As pupils move up through the School they are encouraged to take a more active role in initiating and leading clubs and societies; allowing them to develop their own interests while providing an opportunity for leading others.
