Cliff Schools are a group of independent Nursery, Pre-prep and Prep schools based in Silkstone, South Yorkshire and Wakefield , West Yorkshire . Originally opened in 1939 Cliff Co-Educational Preparatory School is based at Leeds Road , Wakefield . Our Pre-preparatory site is close by on Bar Lane . This setting takes boys and girls up to 7 years of age, whilst our Preparatory School offers a seamless transition up to eleven years.
Our Wakefield sites are complimented by our sister school, Cliff Nursery (Silkstone) just outside Barnsley . Our tailor made setting offers premium quality education from our baby unit (6 weeks of age) to Kindergarten, for five year olds.
Not only do we offer the highest academic standards, but all our children receive a broad and balanced holistic education. As Wakefield 's only stand alone independent school which caters for this age range, we are justifiably proud of our reputation and our results. Our children graduate to a wide range of schools in the area and we have the strongest links to all our neighbouring schools.
Ever conscious of the demands placed upon today's families, we are pleased to offer wrap-around care at both ends of the day and holiday clubs during all school breaks.
The Alpha Plus Group purchased the Cliff Schools in December 2004. With its enviable reputation for educational excellence, Alpha Plus is committed to developing not only the sites and resources but the educational experiences for all the children. The Alpha Plus Group is committed to a large investment to Cliff Schools which will lead to the continued development of ICT, Sport, Science and Design Technology, whilst enhancing the current outstanding facilities for Music and Foreign Languages.
Cliff School is a vibrant, innovative community. It cares for all its pupils, parents and staff and believes passionately in the individual qualities of its members.
