Mitchell Clarke in Year 7 and as Head of Secondary

Twenty-six years ago, Mitchell Clarke was a Year 7 student commencing the school year at William Clarke College, a P-12 Anglican school in the Hills District. This year he returned to the College, this time as the new Head of Secondary.

Mr Mitchell Clarke, Head of Secondary, said it was an honour to have such a significant role at a school he remembered fondly for the support it gave, both personally and academically, during some of his formative years.

“Within the walls of this school, and under the care of its teachers, I was taught not only about the world in which we live but was also introduced to the God who created it,” he said.

“William Clarke College is known for its strong learning and wellbeing outcomes and that was certainly my experience. 

“There have been some dramatic changes at the College since my time as a student including new facilities and staff members, but the College’s core purpose remains the same.”

Mr Clarke is an experienced educator, having held both wellbeing and curriculum leadership positions throughout his career. 

“I believe giving Secondary students the responsibility to make decisions, to have autonomy and ownership of their learning journey is key to helping students understand what it is to learn and to achieve their goals,” he said.

“I look forward to contributing to William Clarke College’s future-focused approach to learning and helping equip its students with a strong sense of agency to set them up for success beyond their success at school.”
