Melbourne Girls Grammar has specialised in providing a quality education for girls since 1893. We value our traditions and history of achievement. We are a forward looking 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. Leadership, team building, social and cultural awareness, and a strong sense of personal self worth are crucial components of an education at Melbourne Girls Grammar. 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.

Curriculum and Qualifications

Co-Curricular Programs A broad, rich, liberal curriculum is available at Melbourne Girls Grammar from ELC to VCE with diverse Co-Curricular options for every girl. Life at Melbourne Girls Grammar exposes students to a range of curriculum, community and co-curricular opportunities. Students are extended, challenged and enjoy the extensive co-curricular offerings available to them throughout their time at Melbourne Girls Grammar. MGGS girls are encouraged to embrace all activities as an opportunity to expand their experiences, further develop existing skills and find new passions. It is our belief that involvement in all aspects of School life increases each student’s sense of School belonging, expands friendship groups, and also leads to higher levels of motivation and engagement. At Melbourne Girls Grammar, we expect and encourage our girls to immerse themselves in School life beyond the classroom, and in return be rewarded with the joy of participation and personal best achievement. Standout co-curricular opportunities for MGGS girls include Art, Sport, Drama and Music Opportunities that showcase the diverse talents, interest and passions that girls can develop during their time at MGGS. Passionate staff work with girls to provide world class opportunities in these pursuits for girls to explore and thrive in.
