Mrs Clifton has responsibility for safeguarding at the prep school. This area is of utmost importance across the school and the role involves liaising with pupils, staff, parents and external agencies in order that all children in our care remain safe. In addition to this, Mrs Clifton also leads our future schools programme, which includes entrance procedures and preparation at Year 5 and 6, and also manages to the organisation of events and the day to day requirements of the school.
