Description

Clifton College Bristol Somerset antique print. Clifton College is a co-educational independent school in the suburb of Clifton in the port city of Bristol in South West England, founded in 1862. In its early years it was notable (compared with most public schools of the time) for emphasising science rather than classics in the curriculum, and for being less concerned with social elitism, e.g. by admitting day-boys on equal terms and providing a dedicated boarding house for Jewish boys. Having linked its General Studies classes with Badminton School, it admitted girls to the Sixth Form and is now fully coeducational. The dedicated Jewish boarding house closed in 1938. It was at Clifton that the second-highest cricket score ever recorded was made by 13-year-old A. E. J. Collins in June 1899. Collins’s 628 not out stood as the record score till January 2016 when Pranav Dhanawade, 15 years old, of Mumbai, India, scored 1009 in a schools’ game. Collins was killed in World War I.Clifton College Bristol antique print.
