Clifton School and Nursery
Clifton School and Nursery has been named the best Prep or pre-Prep School in the country, and one of the three best schools overall, in the 2018 TES independent School Awards.
Clifton is part of the St Peter’s family of schools, which was shortlisted three times in total in the awards: St Peter’s School, for children age 13 – 18, was shortlisted for its outstanding partnership work with the Archbishop Sentamu Academy in Hull, and St Olave’s School, for children age 8 – 13, was also shortlisted in the Best Prep or pre-Prep School category.
“I am absolutely thrilled to receive this award, said Phil Hardy, Head of Clifton. “Our staff and pupils bring joy and enthusiasm to their learning every single day, and I am so proud of them. This award is a reflection of the spirit of our school community.”
Leo Winkley, Head Master of the St Peter’s School 3-18 Foundation, said: “This is wonderful recognition for the extraordinary learning community of Clifton School and Nursery, our 3-8 pre-Prep School. We were delighted to be shortlisted three times, particularly in view of the calibre of the other entrants. We are all thrilled for Phil Hardy and his outstanding team at Clifton School and Nursery. The vibrancy and creativity of the teaching and learning are evident to everyone who walks through its doors, and it is wonderful that this has been recognised nationally.”
Clifton was previously named as Prep School of the Year in the 2012 Archant Publishing awards.
