Clifton House School was on Stray Road, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England.[1] Clifton is said to have opened in the 1890s in Queen Parade, Harrogate, closing in 1968. The school was named after the house it occupied, Clifton House. Its owner James Walter Nuttall moved the school from Queen Parade to Stray Road in 1906.

Gordon William George Cass, or "Charlie" to his pupils, taught at Clifton from 1923 to 1936 when he left to set up his own school, Norwood College.

The school magazine was the "Aquila".
