The overall organisation of the Senior Schooling phase of education is the responsibility of the Head of Senior Schooling.
The pastoral care of the students in this phase is organised around a vertical House system. All Year 6–12 students are placed into vertical pastoral care groups in one of six Houses.
The curriculum is subject based with each subject being taught by specialist staff. Year 10 is a precursor year to Years 11 and 12 with subject offerings providing a 'taste' of the subjects offered in the final years of schooling.
The success of the students undertaking this phase is a result of the work undertaken in the three final years of schooling based on the solid foundation of Junior and Middle schooling.
That we are successful in meeting the educational, pastoral and spiritual aims of the College is born out by:
- our Senior academic results, as measured by OPs where each year approximately one-third of our Year 12 students gain an OP between 1 and 5 and two-thirds achieve an OP between 1 and 10;
- each year more than 90% of our students go on to tertiary study;
- students from Clayfield College have represented Queensland and Australia in their chosen sport; and
- former students are found in all walks of life from engineers to environmental consultants to barristers and doctors.
