Established in 1893, Melbourne Girls Grammar (MGGS) is a place where challenge and choice create opportunities for every girl to discover who she is meant to be. We are a school with an outstanding history of providing girls with an exceptional education that equips them to thrive in their many life contexts. Through an unwavering commitment to their personal best, girls at MGGS develop confidence and independence. Our Student Values provide the foundation for student service and leadership, and the world-class Learning Programs (Early Learning; Junior Years: Prep to Year 4; Middle Years: Years 5 to 8; Senior Years: Years 9 to 12) are specifically created to respond to the unique needs of contemporary girls. We believe that students thrive when they are engaged in a challenging academic program within a nurturing environment. Our approach is aimed at ensuring girls are keen to learn and to extend themselves, that they seek out opportunities and are solution focused in their thinking.

A key message at MGGS is that every girl is valued and each can contribute to the life of our community. Enhancing an MGGS education are the diverse opportunities offered in the classroom and beyond. Diverse subjects within an extensive Melbourne Girls Grammar Curriculum include but are not limited to Drama, Music, Physical Performance and Health, Mathematics, Science, Art, Digital Design and Media, a range of Modern Languages, Theatre Studies and Humanities. The depth of co-curricular programs offered in every Learning Program ensures that every girl explores and develops her areas of interest and passion to maximise her learning. We are a future-focused community and understand that our students must be prepared for life in an increasingly complex and globally connected world. Our focus is the development of young women with the confidence, skills and experience to excel in life beyond school.

“The exceptional Education Program at Melbourne Girls Grammar maximises every girl’s academic potential and her future opportunities. We provide rich and varied opportunities for every girl to pursue her unique passions and interests through diverse subjects and into non-traditional career fields. Within world class learning environments, supported by leading educators, our girls are continually challenged and achieve their amazing personal best.” Mr Chris McNamara, Deputy Principal: Curriculum and Innovation.
