Gifts that have changed lives



We are enormously grateful to those who have supported the School through philanthropy and charitable giving. Parents, friends and the Clifton Rosarians have consistently shown their support to the School. Through individual gifts, establishing transformative bursaries and scholarships or supporting large scale projects and appeals such as the School's Swimming Pool Library and Music Department, their generous support has helped to ensure the School's continued development. 

New technology for our youngest learners

“Technology and digital capability embedded into the heart of our School is critical and enables our staff and pupils to be capable leaders now and in the future. This is the reason why I feel so passionate about supporting the School's drive to provide new technology and digital learning systems across the Infant and Junior School."

Enhanced facilities which have benefitted generations 

During their time at Clifton High School, Kate and Izzy trained in Artistic Swimming in our very own School Swimming Pool which itself was built following a successful fundraising appeal in 1967. Since leaving School, Kate and Izzy have competed at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, representing Great Britain.

“The on-site swimming pool is an amazing facility that afforded us the opportunity to pursue our ambitions whilst still at School. During lockdown, conforming to government guidelines, we were able to use the pool when we had no where else to train. This really saved our journey to the Olympics.”

Supporting pupils, whatever thier financial means

Following a degree in Law and a Masters in Psychology, Jade found her passion in the realms of Business Psychology and Organisational Development. She is currently working for TikTok in Los Angeles, Dubai and Singapore.

“Clifton High School helped mould the person I am today; the teachers taught me to be bold, confident and reach for the heights to pursue my dreams. I was given a wonderful opportunity, and I am eternally grateful for the support I was given, as I wouldn't have been able to attend Clifton High School without financial help.”

The gift of a legacy - supporting future generations

Gifts in Wills have played a pivotal role in shaping our School. They have enabled us to grow our facilities and support pupils with life-changing bursaries. With your support, we can continue to provide an outstanding learning experience for our pupils today, and for generations to come.

“Music has always been integral to our Clifton High School community. Thanks to a recent legacy, we have been able to purchase five new pianos, including a grand piano in our main hall, ensuring we have first-class facilities to support our talented students.”
