Overview

Clifton Hill School is a “Good” special school with an “Outstanding” sixth form (Ofsted July 2015) for 87 students aged 11-19 years who have PMLD, SLD, ASD, challenging behaviour and complex medical needs.

About Us

We have high expectations for our students’ achievement and we are committed to providing an educational environment that prepares them to become confident young people, happy and comfortable with their place in society. Our committed, caring and talented staff is enthusiastic in their delivery of exciting and personalised learning experiences for our students.

We are a stable school community, but dynamic in our ambition to continually improve. Clifton Hill has students from a range of diverse backgrounds, many with complex needs. All of our children and young people are highly valued and respected as individuals. Educating children with special educational needs is a great responsibility and we continually strive to forge and sustain relationships with parents and carers that encourage open, supportive communication.

Built in the latter half of the 20th century, the school has undergone recent transformation, most noticeable being a new Sixth Form teaching block with excellent facilities, and a bespoke Sensory Pod. Our relationship with parents, carers and the wider community is fundamental to the wellbeing of our students.

Ofsted noted that: ”parents are overwhelmingly pleased with the school”. We promote collaborative working to ensure that we provide a robust and comprehensive education for our students. We are grateful for the “excellent links with partner organisations which contribute significantly to students’ learning.” (OFSTED July 2015).

We are a welcoming friendly school community, where our values are shared by all, and we work together to maximize the outcomes and opportunities for our young people.
