Broadens horizons, fosters interests and hones essential skills.


Co-curricular is an essential programme of life at Clifton High School, providing a profoundly enriching experience for all participating children. 

With an extensive array of over one hundred and fifty co-curricular clubs, thoughtfully categorized into Skills Development, Academic Progress, and Individual Brilliance, we wholeheartedly encourage participation in all three spheres.

Embracing a holistic approach to individual growth, we cater to a diverse range of interests, aspiring to ignite in our pupils an engaged and empathetic response to the world around them. Our aim is to nurture well-rounded individuals who thrive on inspiration and professional development.

Our youngest children in the Infant School have a bespoke co-curricular programme tailored to their needs and interests, providing them with the opportunity to explore this important aspect of School life.


There are many sporting clubs that complement and expand upon our curriculum. We also offer an array of sports clubs that reflect current trends and the interests of our children, as well as encouraging them to try a sport they may never have thought, or had the opportunity, of participating in. These clubs include Tennis, Swimming, Taekwondo, Dance, Rounders, Basketball.  

The valued and esteemed sporting partnerships we have with the University of Bristol, Henleaze Performance Swimming Club and Bristol Sport allow our children to learn from experienced professionals around their academic education. 


A passion for the arts is embraced at Clifton High School with a number of musical and performance clubs that see our students and community members unite to collaborate in a commitment to the arts.

Visiting Music Teachers provide our students with individual lessons that build upon technical skills and encourage performance confidence.
