Boarding at Clayfield

Boarding at Clayfield is an incredibly rewarding experience where your child will learn and grow in a safe, caring and supportive environment.

Sharing a home with students from across Australia and the globe, they will establish connections with their Boarding family that will last a lifetime. Your child’s passion will be ignited by the wealth of outstanding opportunities at their fingertips, including academic and co-curricular offerings. Through gaining a second family from Years 7 to 12, your child will also be nurtured to be independent and to value and respect others.

Previously offering girls-only boarding, the College will transition to a coeducational day and boarding school in 2023 as part of the distinctive Parallel Learning model. Co-educational boarding provides many social and emotional benefits. Clayfield is fortunate that as a former hospital, the Carolyn Hauff Boarding House design will easily adapt to create separate living facilities for boys and girls, while still benefiting from shared services such as catering. Refurbishment plans are currently in development.
