Impact on Brisbane Society

Clayfield College was founded in 1931. It grew out of the Brisbane Boys’ College’s Clayfield history, going back to 1902, taking its old campus when Somerville House set up its primary school department on the site (1931). Thus we have a location history with the intersection of three schools operated by the Presbyterian and Methodist Schools Association. When a secondary school was established in 1935, Clayfield was separated from Somerville House. Clayfield’s first Principal was Nancy Ashburn (retired in 1964).
