September 2017

The Clifton Centre has now relocated, on a temporary basis, to the site of the old Ambrose Barlow High School:-

Shaftesbury Road, Swinton M27 5SZ


November 2017

We are aware that for a few of our students, there may be some disruption during November due to bus services run by the Arriva Bus company.  However, if your child is affected by this, you must ring the school to advise us, please.  Thank you
