The estate was built in the 1950s, it was planned not as one area but as five different neighborhoods, each with their own infant and juniors schools. Although this plan didn’t turn out as expected Clifton now has pockets of schools and houses and six primary schools in the area. Nottingham Lettings thoroughly recommends Clifton as a great place for families with young children as you have a great choice of schools in this area.
