Risk Assessment on Reopening School

A full and comprehensive Trust wide risk assessment on the reopening of schools in June is now available to view here.

Following last night’s government announcement

Last night’s government announcement: Boris Johnson has announced a complete lockdown of the UK, instructing people not to leave their homes or meet in groups of more than two people. This is to further enforce social distancing measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

With this in mind, you must only send your child to school if it is absolutely essential. It is important that no student or member of staff should come to school that has not been scheduled to do so. Students that are due to attend school must only do so where no safe alternative is available. We strongly encourage parents to make alternative arrangements where possible to reduce contact with people outside of the family home and risk spreading the virus.

We all need to play our part to keep ourselves safe and help reduce the strain on our local NHS services.

Thank you for your ongoing support during this challenging time.

The wearing of protective face coverings at Clifton Community School.

Following the government’s decision to allow students and staff to wear face masks in secondary schools in England, students are free to wear face masks in school should they wish. If students do wish to wear face masks, they can be worn in communal areas such as corridors. However, current advice does not recommend that students should wear their masks in lessons and we expect students to follow this advice.

We will not be providing masks, so if your child wishes to wear one, please source disposable or washable masks before their designated start date:

● Wednesday 2nd September, school will reopen to all students in Year 7 and Year 11
● Monday 7th September, school will open to all Year 10 students (in addition to Year 7 and Year 11)
● Wednesday 9th September, school will open to all Year 8 students (in addition to Year 7, Year 10 and Year 11)
● Monday 14th September school will be open to all Year 9 students and commence full reopening

We will be in touch on Tuesday 1st September with a reminder of specific arrangements for our return to school.

Congratulations, Class of 2020!

Huge congratulations to all Clifton Community School students collecting results today. 2020 has been an extraordinary year, but you worked hard, believed in yourselves and dreamed big. We wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavours – you all deserve it!

Once again, Clifton students have demonstrated excellent progress in their GCSE examinations.
Amongst our top performers were:

  • Ameerah Ali with three Grade 9s and 5 Grade 8s, and two Grade 7s, firmly placing her in the top 5% in the country and demonstrating her all-round academic ability.
  • Habibah Hussain, who exceeded all her targets and achieved four Grade 9s, two Grade 8s, and four Grade 7s.
  • Ellie Bullen, who got a great set of results including two Grade 9s, a Grade 8, five Grade 7s, and a Distinction.
  • Mason Oxborough who successfully attained two Grade 8s, four Grade 7s, two Distinction, and a Level 2 Distinction.
  • Divan Ebot Agbor who since his arrival to Year 11 at Clifton has seized every opportunity also secured an excellent set of GCSE results (one Grade 9, a Grade 8, three Grade 7s, a Grade 6, and a Grade 5.

All of these students are progressing to the next stage in their academic journey at Sixth Form, where they will study a range of courses. They will no doubt continue to be excellent ambassadors of the Clifton Way.


Well done cohort of 2020. Your commitment to learning during your 5 years at Clifton and resilience to rise above challenging circumstances is something you should be proud of. We wish you all excellent luck for the future.

Advice for Applicants

Science STEM Work

Well done to Danielle for her Science Stem work. Mr Gurran is very proud of her knowledge and understanding shown through her protein design. Well done Danielle.

This particular protein makes up the sodium ion channel and is important in nerve transmission. If the sodium channel was in a nerve cell that was part of a pain pathway, then blocking that channel with a drug would be useful in dentistry because it would stop or reduce the nerve that’s passing on a pain signal so the amount of pain that someone may feel wouldn’t be as bad.

Excellent Work in Maths

Some excellent Maths work here from Alisha Khan Y9.
Alisha Khan, Logan Mcloud, Boris Abaffy, Ayesha Abrar, Abigail Foord, Tehmeed Mian and Adam Saleh have all consistently produced work to a very high standard throughout lockdown. They have all completed revision mats, worksheets, mathswatch and practice papers, ensuring they have a solid basis of their previous knowledge ready for September, when we will continue with the harder higher end maths topics. Well done all!
