Mentone Girls' Secondary College

Mentone Girls' Secondary College

VIC, Melbourne Southern Suburbs & Western Port







Mentone Girls’ Secondary College is an exemplary government school with a thriving educational community with students travelling from over 60 postcodes to join our College. Our girls are encouraged to explore, invent and create in a safe, challenging and respectful environment. We offer a broad range of S.T.E.A.M. subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) which is so important for girls to ensure they are future ready. We have a comprehensive sport and aerobics program with many teams competing at state level.  

Our music programs offer students an opportunity to join a band form in Year 7 and 8 or simply participate in a broad range of instrumental music classes, ensembles and bands in our dedicated Performing Arts Centre.

Beginning in 2019, Mentone Girls’ Secondary College will offer an Enhancement Program for girls who seek a greater academic challenge. The Enhancement Program will run from Years 7 to 9 and will provide students with the opportunity to learn through higher-order thinking, inquiry and rich tasks as part of an enhanced curriculum in English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science. Students will have access to a number of co-curricular activities such as the Tournament of Minds, Writers’ Festival, History Challenge and others. Rather than accelerating or compacting curriculum, students in the Enhancement Program will work on more complex tasks and will learn topics to a greater depth and breadth. In later years we offer students access to VCE studies in Year 10.

As a school with a rich history of educating young women to take their place in a globalised world, our dedicated teachers are always seeking to innovate the curriculum and remain at the forefront of educational theory and practice. We are committed to providing an environment that nurtures the mind, body and spirit.  

Our VCE results are excellent with 99 per cent of our students choosing a pathway into further education and training. 

Mentone Girls’ Secondary College welcomes students from all over Melbourne. Become part of our great tradition so that you can make your mark in this globalised world.
