Background: We trained to become a Forest School with our partners Kilcooley Primary School in 2019. We trained in the beautiful grounds of Clandeboye Estate in Bangor.
At Clifton School it is our aim to provide an inclusive, high quality education that enriches our pupils through learning, promotes their happiness and prepares them as individuals to lead fulfilling lives within society.


Clifton School caters for pupils with Severe Learning Difficulties and complex needs.
We are delighted to be an Eco School obtaining our Green Flag for the second time in 2017. We also celebrated our Level One status as a Rights Respecting School in the same year.

Forest School setting: We have used the fantastic 2,000 acre estate at Clandeboye for our Forest School activities. We will be developing our Forest School site over the coming years.
