Clifton Preparatory School, Nottingham Road is a private, co-educational boarding school located in the Nottingham Road area of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands in South Africa.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1942 when half of Clifton School moved from Durban to the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands over fears of danger during World War II. It is co-educational.

Clifton has added Grade 00 and phased out Grade 8 which traditionally was a boys-only grade.

Boarding[edit]

Clifton accepts boy and girl boarders from Grade 1 (age 6) and offers boarding options, from full boarding to weekly and temporary boarding. Clifton is one of the few remaining independent preparatory schools in KwaZulu-Natal that offers full boarding to young children, with boarders coming from Southern African countries.

Grounds[edit]

The school has 60 hectares of land.

IT[edit]

Clifton has campus-wide WiFi providing children access the Internet, email and servers. The One Laptop per Child program provides every child in Grade 5, 6 and 7 with a NL1 or NL2 Tablet Classmate Netbook.
