Welcome to Clifton State High School

Clifton State High School is a small, rural, co-educational secondary school located between Toowoomba and Warwick offering enrolment in years 7 to 12. It services the communities of Leyburn, Felton, Cambooya, Clifton, Nobby, Ryeford, Back Plains, Greenmount, Emu Creek and Pilton.

Junior Secondary has taken off with a flying start. Year 7 students have settled into high school with the help of our award winning teachers. This important reform is of great benefit to students, granting them the same learning opportunities as their interstate counterparts.

In Junior Secondary we offer a supportive environment which is focused on learner interests and needs and in which students are encouraged and challenged to excel.

The school offers a wide variety of opportunities for all students. There are a broad range of subject choices and extra curricula activities. We are extremely proud of our successful Cattle Team, Agricultural Operations, Instrumental Music Group, Hospitality Group and Pathways program.

Students enjoy equine studies in agriculture, learning about equine care, nutrition and horse handling. Students are also showing great interest in horse handling as a sporting elective. These students learn the basics of horse care, handling and riding skills. Plans to extend the equine program in 2014 are underway.

Our school is small enough to offer an individualised and caring learning environment, but large enough to provide maximum opportunities for student achievement.
