When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning.
We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.
Clifton College has approximately 735 students of which over 335 are boarders. The school is a mainstream school with typically less than 20% international students.
Clifton College is able to make provision for students who have certain specific learning difficulties, for example dyslexia, or who have a need for specialist or additional help in some areas of their learning.
The College facilitates the provision of specialist teachers for Learning Support, both mainstream academic subject teachers and teachers with experience in Special Educational Needs. The Learning Support Department in the Fyffe Centre has a classroom for group learning support and six classrooms for individual teaching as well as the new Learning Hub computer suite.
Students needing qualifications in English, such as IELTS, for university entrance are required to arrange these externally. However, Sixth Form students from overseas have the opportunity to take an intensive course in IELTS preparation as most of them will need to take the IELTS exam prior to entry to a British university. Should it be necessary, private lessons with specialist EAL teachers are also available to help with IELTS preparation and to support the language requirements of other subjects. These lessons are at extra cost and usually take place in a student’s free time so that withdrawal from other lessons is not necessary.
Clifton College is based in Bristol and is only 5 miles from Bristol international airport.
A Day in the Life of…
The College’s broad academic and co-curricular provision is underpinned by its tailored pastoral care system. The house system is central to the College’s approach; it engenders a sense of belonging in all its pupils and delivers outstanding individual care. Day and boarding houses benefit from the same pastoral care structure and have a Housemaster or Housemistress, an assistant, a matron and tutors, who provide support and guidance to each pupil.
The strong friendships pupils form within their house are a valued and are fundamental part of their Clifton College experience.
