About our school

St Peter Claver College is a Catholic Co-educational Secondary College offering high quality and affordable education for students in Years 7 – 12.

Students are offered a dynamic and inclusive curriculum executed by hard working, highly motivated and professional teaching staff. Our academic offering appeals to the full spectrum of learner types and places a high value on making quality education accessible to all families in the community. We have opportunities for students to participate in accelerated learning in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science.

Whether the goal post-school is university, further vocational study or employment, we have a broad and rigorous suite of programs, Certificate courses, School-based Apprenticeship and Work Experience options available.  St Peter Claver College offers an impressive combination of academic, vocational, technological, cultural, artistic, sporting and leadership pathways designed to motivate and prepare students for future success.

We embrace and celebrate our diversity in many ways while drawing our Catholic understanding from our Marist, Mercy and Jesuit influences. It is this strong sense of community that ultimately sets Claver apart from other schools.  We place a strong emphasis on justice and service to the community, teaching our students values that last a lifetime such as faith, kindness, honesty and compassion.

Our College motto Concern, Love and Justice provides our students and community with guidance and values in which to strive to live their everyday lives by.

Whatever your future holds … Know you can.

Principal's Message

We know our students can and will achieve great things.

Through St Peter Claver College’s tailored academic programs, broad curriculum, individualised learning and our motivational approach we want to ensure our students are prepared for their future. Whatever that might be.

We understand that one of your greatest concerns as a parent is how you are going to prepare your child for a fulfilling and successful future. The opportunities ahead of our students are endless and we prepare them with the skills and attitudes for success, knowing that many jobs have not even been created yet.

Our professional and dedicated team of teachers, coaches, mentors and staff will be here every day as educators and supporters of your child. We will celebrate their gifts and talents and help pick them back up should they fall. We will help them reach their goals and become the best possible versions of themselves.

Our College is a place for students to learn, achieve, grow and foster their passions. I am proud to lead such an incredible community and I look forward to welcoming you to the Claver family.
