Our Vision, Mission and Motto


Clayfield College exists to partner with parents in the formation of motivated and conscientious, global minded citizens, guided by the Christian faith, who will impact their world through lived integrity, sustainability, inclusivity and service.


Clayfield College will be a thriving coeducational day and boarding school that adds life-long value to students, who in turn, go on to serve others. The Clayfield College light will shine through students, staff and Old Collegians who create a better world.

We will achieve this through our values of Care, Integrity, Resilience and Respect and consistent focus on our Strategic Pillars:

Learning by design

Fostering a pathway to academic success through customised programs that promote opportunities.

Wellbeing through belonging

Authentic care for students that ensures each student is known, valued, understood, and experiences a sense of belonging.

Learning from experiences

Living the unique ‘Clayfield experience’ that promotes the development of courageous, altruistic, and compassionate citizens.

Sustainability with responsibility

Forging a future that is financially, environmentally and socially sustainable.


At Clayfield College, we live by our motto ‘Let your light shine’.

We fuel the fire for students by creating a sense of purpose and a community families want to belong to. By fostering a progressive educational environment, we prepare and educate every student to achieve their personal best.

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
