Be happy, laugh often, work hard and give back to the community."

Our aim at Clayfield College is to challenge our students academically through enquiry and engagement, whilst nurturing an intellectual curiosity of the world around them. We offer a stimulating academic curriculum, and comprehensive co-curricular opportunities for our students to pursue their interest in sport, the arts, and service leadership.

The College has a strong academic focus, where our students are encouraged to set and achieve personal academic goals. Through our extension learning programs, we offer a broad range of activities that foster essential enquiry skills, such as problem solving, creative thinking, flexibility and tenacity. Our relatively small class sizes also ensure that more attention is given to each individual student. But, more importantly, learning is for life, not just for school. Our Pastoral Care Program focuses on a holistic approach which encourages our students to develop commitment, self-discipline, self-motivation and a sense of social responsibility. We encourage our students to be happy, laugh often, work hard and give back to the community.

Ultimately, what Clayfield College offers is an opportunity for your son or daughter to explore their full potential. Our highly experienced staff have the passion, drive and ability to inspire and guide, him or her, to be the very best they can be.

Thank you for your interest in Clayfield College. I encourage you to take the time to visit us and find out for yourself what makes this College so very special.
