William Clarke College is located in the heart of Kellyville. The
K–12 College is highly regarded for its strong Christian foundation, the
quality of its pastoral care and the strength of relationships between
students, teachers and parents. Our aim is to provide students with a high
quality Christian education and many opportunities to excel in sport, music and
drama. A William Clarke education involves academic study and a rich variety of
co-curricular activities. All programs are designed to challenge each student
to fully develop their learning and leadership skills so they are equipped to
make a Christian difference in the world as graduates. In Junior School (Years
K–4), students will benefit from unique teaching teams where two qualified
teachers co-teach classes until lunch every day, maximising individual student
engagement. That’s a teacher-student ratio of 1:10 in Years K–2 and 1:12 in
Years 3–4.

Facilities: Established in 1988, the College enjoys expansive
grounds and impressive teaching and learning facilities. The College also
prides itself on extensive music facilities, a designated drama space,
commercial grade kitchens and multi-purpose courts.

Electives Years 9 and 10: Students in Years 9 and 10 study courses
for the School Certificate by completing mandatory subjects and also two
elective subjects in a variety of areas. Electives are offered in any given
year subject to a reasonable number of students selecting that course.

Electives Years 11 and 12: Christian Development and English are
compulsory. Students can then choose from a wide range of academic and
vocational courses leading up to the HSC. Electives are offered in any given
year subject to a reasonable number of students selecting that course.

Sport: A large range of sports is available for students to
participate in which includes representative teams competing against other
local independent schools and regular house sport competitions.

Co-curricular activities: Students are encouraged to participate in
co-curricular activities to help develop a balanced lifestyle. Music ensembles
are available along with drama groups, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme,
debating and public speaking, chess groups and dance troupes. Students who wish
to start a new “club” are encouraged to do so with teacher support.

Welfare and personal development: The Pastoral Care System. Students
are given the opportunity to associate with staff and develop strong
friendships with students from other year groups. The Pastoral Care program
also builds resilience, confidence and compassion. This is achieved through:

Vertical tutor groups of around 18 students of varying ages, with
teachers appointed to provide individual care and support;
— Membership in one of 12 houses with around 90 students from Years
5 to 12;
— Weekly Chapel services and Christian Development Classes —
Opportunity to attend GLO (the student-led Christian group).
