Clifton Village sits amidst beautiful green spaces that afford visitors and locals alike with captivating views across the Avon Gorge, leisurely walks or more active pursuits on Durdham and Clifton Downs or within the grounds of Ashton Court. The School immerses itself in the local community and is fortunate to be a short walk from a plethora of independent restaurants, cafes, shops as well as the buzz of the City centre.

Whilst we do not have onsite parking, we offer staff the opportunity to purchase a local parking permit. There are also many private and street parking options within short walking distances to the School.
