Clifton State High School, a school proud of its town in a town proud of its school while striving to achieve in every field.

Clifton State High School was a Pilot School for Year 7 students moving to high school in our region.  Our success in this transition area is evident in the increased numbers of junior students enrolling in our school.  Our Junior Secondary School is committed to six guiding principles: Distinct identity; Quality teaching; Student wellbeing; Parent and community involvement; Leadership and Local decision making.  In Junior Secondary, we offer a supportive environment, focused on learner interests and needs, where students are encouraged and challenged to excel.

With enrolments of approximately 260 students from Year 7 to Year 12, Clifton State High School is small enough to continue to offer a personalised teaching and learning approach and take pride in the family atmosphere that is evident in our school community.  Although small, the school offers a wide variety of opportunities for students.

Our Senior School is focused on the QCE and ATAR system, preparing students for their chosen pathway through a commitment of 'whatever it takes'. We offer a wide range of subject choices, extra curricula activities and we are extremely proud of our new Equine Centre, which supports growth of our certificates in equine related courses.  Other areas of success include our Cattle Team, Agricultural Operations, Instrumental Music Group and Trade Training Centre.

Clifton State High School's highly successful Vocational Pathways program offers three Certificate III courses and also Certificate II and I subjects.  2021 facility upgrades will provide Hospitality students with industry standard kitchens, barista and cafe areas.  Our modern art facilities will provide future artists the opportunity to enhance their creativity.

Real life opportunities for local jobs from our local school.

Our school is small enough to offer an individualised and caring learning environment but large enough to provide maximum opportunities for every student to succeed through the school's focus on Achieving in Every Field.
