Clayfield College offers both full and weekly boarding opportunities to its families.
Full boarding: Since 1939, Clayfield College has offered a full boarding experience for rural and remote students and more recently for local, indigenous and international students. Full time boarders enjoy generous leave privileges and a comprehensive recreational program.
Weekly boarding: Weekly boarding is available for girls whose families reside in Brisbane or live in regions which are easily accessible to Brisbane. Weekly boarders travel home every Friday after school, returning on Sunday afternoon to prepare for the beginning of the academic week. The Boarding House understands the need for students to live in residence during the week. Parents have peace of mind knowing their daughters are able to focus on academic, sporting, or cultural commitments in a safe and caring environment during the week, whilst still enjoying the home environment on the weekend. Whilst weekly boarders have the option of venturing home every weekend they are encouraged to remain in residence as often as possible to participate in the recreational program. This option has aided the development of authentic relationships amongst all the boarders as well as fostering a strong sense of community.
