Alfred Henry Clegg was born in 1890 in Bury St. Edmund's, England to Thomas and Alice Clegg. Alfred completed his elementary education in 1903, and then spent a year at a commercial school. At 14, he began secondary education at West Suffolk County School. In the last two years of his four years at West Suffolk, Alfred began teaching training. In 1908, he was awarded a preliminary teaching certificate. At 19, Alfred attended St. Peter's College, Peterborough and began a two year teacher training. In 1911, Alfred received his official certificate. From 1912 -- 1914, he taught in West Yorkshire. In 1914, Alfred traveled to Canada and taught at Paulus School District No. 1016 near Chipman, Alberta.

In 1924, Alfred returned to teaching and began at Cooking Lake School District No. 2625. In 1927, Clegg took over Partridge Hill School District No. 280.
