Clayfield College, founded in 1931, is one of Australia's leading schools, and offers a vibrant, learning community encouraging students to achieve personal excellence in a supportive environment. It 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 and corporate staff, are important in providing opportunities for your child to grow and develop in mind, body, heart and soul.

Academically, Clayfield College is leading the way!  100% of Clayfield's Year 12 cohort achieved their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).  Clayfield graduates performed exceptionally with all girls achieving between an OP 1-16. This resulted in a School Median of OP 7, which is an excellent indication of their overall achievement.  Of our students wishing to enter tertiary studies, 1 in 3 students achieved an OP 1-5, 1 in 2 students achieved OP 1-7 and 98% achieved an OP 1-15.

Clayfield College offers a stimulating curriculum that incorporates innovative learning experiences, and an understanding and acceptance of individual skills and talents. Our aim is to provide every child with an outstanding teaching and learning environment by supporting the diversity of our learners with contemporary teaching styles. Our Teaching and Learning Programs inspire our students to achieve their academic potential through a range of learning experiences that engage, excite and challenge them.

Clayfield College welcomes students from all over Australia and the world. It is co-educational from Pre-Prep to Year 6 and girls only from Year 7 to Year 12. The College is also a Boarding School for girls, caring for students from Years 5 to 12, on a daily, casual, weekly or term basis.


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 and we are centrally located to buses, both 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.
