Clarke was brought up in the town of Southend and was educated at Southend High School for Boys and was a prominent hockey player there. Many have followed in Jonty's footsteps and become great players, many representing Essex.[citation needed] SHSB said that they believed Jonty is the second pupil to ever represent Team GB at the Olympics after Mark Foster.
