Situated on the edge of the CBD, it is attended by students from all over Melbourne and beyond, who bring with them a rich mix of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. The school provides an educational experience that equips girls for tertiary study and leadership roles in the academic, professional and business communities and develops interests and skills to enhance their personal lives. The school has a long and distinguished history of academic excellence in girls’ education.
