Clifton School and Nursery

Clifton School and Nursery is the pre-prep school for St Peter's School in York, offering an outstanding education for children aged from three to eight.



Clifton School and Nursery in York is ideally placed to offer children aged three to eight the best possible start to their education.

An exceptional nursery is the bedrock of the school. From Reception upwards, pupils have access to on-site facilities including a swimming pool and sports hall.

“Our pupils follow a broad, balanced curriculum, with every child offered a wealth of opportunity,” says Head Master Phil Hardy. “We focus on providing a caring, supportive environment, and helping our children to develop as happy, confident individuals.”

Clifton is part of the St Peter’s School Foundation, and caters for children aged 3-8. Pupils follow a stimulating programme, before progressing to St Olave’s School, for children age 8-13, and later on to St Peter’s School for study at GCSE and A-level. Pupils at St Peter’s achieve outstanding academic results.

The structured progression offered by the three schools ensures a child will experience varied and stimulating environments during their school career, without compromising on continuity.

Clifton School and Nursery runs a programme of open mornings and an annual open week, and also welcomes visitors at any time during term time. To arrange a visit, contact Judy Sunderland on 01904 527361 or j.sunderland@cliftonyork.org.uk.
