Melbourne Girls College, Richmond, VIC

Melbourne Girls’ College (MGC) was established in 1994 on the banks of the Yarra River in Richmond, Victoria and is a leader in innovative girls’ education. It provides enrolment opportunities for local, wider-Melbourne and international students to study inquiry and trans-disciplinary units in Years 7-9 followed by a large number of Year 10, VCE and VET in the senior years. The key values of our college are encapsulated in the vision of young women who will “Lead and Achieve”. Our 1300 students are taught and nurtured by excellent staff, parent support, peers and mentors.

The achievements of MGC are certainly in academic results but a broader definition of success ensures personal, social, emotional, sporting and artistic success are central to being a student of the College. The Sustainability Collective of MGC is world renowned and the school community takes pride in teaching ethical understandings to ensure our young women gain a sense of stewardship for the future, the environment and for being a positive influence on others. In recent years MGC has developed new facilities including a gymnasium, a year 7 centre, a performing arts centre, science wing, hospitality, art and technology teaching spaces. The new Languages wing is currently under construction. The Gillard Centre houses a flexible learning, hospitality and meeting space and provides river access for our exemplary rowing program.

Our students are global citizens conscious of the unique lessons attending a school educating young women from diverse backgrounds and over sixty nationalities can bring. Melbourne Girls, in collaboration with key tertiary and community partners in learning, is an inquiring, innovative community of excellence.
