Trips and Visits


Throughout their time at Clifton High School, pupils enjoy a range of varied and exciting educational trips and visits. Carefully planned to enhance the curriculum and bring subjects to life, the variety of trips on offer ensures there is something for everyone and that we provide all our boys and girls with an enriched educational experience.

We offer all our young people the opportunity to take part in exhilarating expeditions through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and World Challenge Programme. Year 7 pupils are encouraged to take part in the annual bonding trip which allows them to get to know each other while taking part in a range of outdoor activities.
