TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF OUR CAMPUS
Clifton, the Independent boys’ school in Durban, is situated in the beautiful suburb of Morningside. We are proud to offer world-class, holistic education for boys from Grade 00 through to Grade 12, catering specifically to the development of boys into responsible, confident and competent young men.
A boys’ school by conviction, Clifton provides an educational environment that is designed to facilitate learning and assist in developing young men of character, who share an uncompromising belief in the power of family values, who thrive on competition, delight in discovery, exercise compassion and are courageous in their choices.
We walk this journey of progress and development with our young men and, as you will see from these pages, there are numerous activities and opportunities from which our boys can choose and grow. At the same time, we are conscious of our motto, “ Prodesse Quam Conspici” – to accomplish, rather than to be conspicuous. As such, our boys remain humble and well mannered.
Take some time to explore our website. Better still, we invite you to visit us at our campus in Morningside, where you will be warmly received. We hope that you will experience the sense of enjoyment that our boys and staff feel from being part of this wonderful school.

A Few Words FROM OUR PARENTS
“The teachers, the facilities, the wealth of options and offerings available to the children, and most importantly the EQ that the school leads our children with and sows into the children from Foundation Phase. The Clifton School ethos is about ‘ALL’ – the focus on unity!”
“Our son is a Clifton Old Boy and we are now proud Grandparents of a Foundation Phase pupil starting his Clifton journey. That Clifton has been entrusted with our Grandson’s education says it all really.”
“It’s an honour for us to be part of the Clifton Family. Our son started in Grade R and is now in the College. What a great school with great values!”
Tanya van der Merwe
