The first notable transformation came around in 1964 when the school moved to a co-educational admissions policy. The next big development was the cessation of boarding between 1994 and 1996. At this time the school still only admitted children of primary age, however this changed in 2008 with the buy over of St Serf’s independent school. Clifton Hall sold the purchased school’s buildings and assets, giving vital funds to expand their own offering to include senior education as well.
