Clayfield College is a place where all individuals are valued for their unique qualities and talents. Our academic, pastoral and co-curricular programs, supported by our exceptional teaching staff, are essential in providing opportunities for your child to grow and develop in mind, heart, body and spirit. Clayfield College is one of Queensland’s leading schools, providing a tradition of quality education. Founded in 1931, the College has a proud history of offering a Christian learning environment in which students are encouraged, nurtured and inspired to achieve personal excellence.
The College is located in the beautiful inner-northern Brisbane suburb of Clayfield, only six and a half kilometres from the central business district and served well by public transport. The Citytrain network is situated close by. The College is centrally located to Brisbane City Council and private bus lines. The College is only five kilometres from the Domestic and International airports as well as the Gateway arterial road that links the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. Clayfield College welcomes students from all over Australia and the world, catering for girls from Pre-Prep to Year 12 and boys from Pre-Prep to Year 6. The College is also a Boarding School for girls, caring for students from Years 5 - 12, on a daily, casual, weekly or term basis.
Clayfield College was officially founded on the 9th February 1931, with just nine students and five teachers. In the subsequent years, Clayfield College has continued to grow and succeed through the dedication and hard work of our Principals: Miss Nancy Ashburn, Miss Ida Kennedy OAM, Mrs Carolyn Hauff AM, Mr Brian Savins and Ms Melissa Powell. Our current Principal, Mrs Kathy Bishop, continues to strengthen our future endeavours and strategic focus.
Clayfield College has developed a proud tradition of boarding for more than 75 years, enriching the lives of generations of young girls and affording them the opportunity to develop lifelong friendships. The Clayfield College Boarding House is a stand-alone and fully self-contained facility.
Our girls enjoy safe, secure and comfortable surroundings where they can learn, grow and become independent young women. The Boarding House offers a variety of accommodation options. There are also numerous recreational rooms, quiet spaces, a library and music room, as well as a new spacious dining room that features an outdoor verandah for our girls to utilise.
Clayfield College is justifiably proud of our academic record and achievements. The College is recognised within the wider community as a school that inspires students to strive for academic success. We offer a stimulating and engaging curriculum, that incorporates innovative learning experiences, and is personalised to challenge the learning needs of every student.
We encourage our students to be flexible and critical in their thinking, to apply their knowledge, and utilise an array of research methodologies and technology to confidently respond to learning tasks. Our aim is to build the confidence of each student by recognising effort and achievement, whilst celebrating personal excellence.
As a dynamic teaching and learning community, the College is committed to continuous improvement. To support the diversity of our learners, we strengthen the learning of our educators through ongoing professional development, to ensure they are equipped with the most contemporary teaching styles and educational practices. Our comprehensive academic programs provide our students with solid foundations in literacy and numeracy in the early years, culminating in learning experiences that challenge and extend our students in Year 12.
Students in Years P-10 study a core curriculum based on the Australian curriculum key learning areas. In Year 9, and again in 10, students may choose electives from within languages, the arts and technology as well as continuing to study in the other core learning areas.
