Visual, Creative & Performing Arts at Clayfield College takes the form of a rich and varied program of classroom and extra-curricular activities.
The world famous Kodaly music teaching method with its associated lateral thinking, is used from Pre-Prep to Year 12. Students have access to the full range of musical opportunities such as concerts and musicals, orchestras and stage bands and individual voice and instrumental tuition.
Drama students are provided with a variety of opportunities to perform creatively while Visual Art provides students with the opportunity to gain an insight into the various elements of art combined with the principles of design.

Clayfield College secondary students are able to participate in a wide range of sports, including Softball, Netball, Hockey, Volleyball, Athletics, Artistic Gymnastics, Football, Cricket, and more.
There is also an Elite Sports Program that assists students to balance their academic, social, and sporting aspirations and commitments. It provides talented athletes the flexibility they may need to succeed in these areas. This may involve the opportunity to train during school hours or to have scheduled study lessons to focus on the learning time they miss owing to extensive training commitments.
It is expected that a student in the Elite Sports program would be at a state or national representation level (or equivalent). Acceptance into the program is based on an interview with the Head of Health, Wellness and Sport. Each student’s timetable is constructed by the Dean of Academic Administration in conjunction with the Head of Health, Wellness and Sport.
