In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Clifton College underwent significant expansion and growth, driven by its popularity and reputation for academic excellence. The school moved to its current site in 1896, which provided more space for buildings and facilities. During this period, the school introduced new subjects such as science, mathematics, and languages, and established its first sports teams.

In recent decades, Clifton College has continued to evolve and adapt to changing educational trends and societal needs. The school has invested heavily in modernizing its facilities, including the construction of new buildings and the renovation of existing ones. The school has also expanded its curriculum to include a wider range of subjects, such as business studies and psychology.

Clifton College is now a thriving independent school with over 1,000 pupils aged 13-18. The school is known for its academic excellence, with pupils achieving outstanding results in public exams. The school is also renowned for its strong sense of community, with a focus on character development, leadership skills, and extracurricular activities.
