Melbourne Girls' College

VIC, Melbourne City Central









Melbourne Girls’ College (MGC) was established in 1994 and is a leader in innovative girls’ education. We provide enrolment opportunities for local, wider-Melbourne and international students to study inquiry and trans-disciplinary units in Years 7 to 9, followed by a large number of Year 10, VCE and VET subjects in the senior years.

Our College is constantly evolving programs and learning schedules to ensure students are ready for the future, with an emphasis on persistence, team work, respect for diversity and personal best. Our 1,480 students are taught and nurtured by excellent staff, parents, peers and mentors.

The achievements of MGC are certainly reflected in academic results, but a broader definition of success ensures social, emotional, sporting and artistic excellence are central to being a student of the College. The English, Humanities, Languages, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), International and Wellbeing Programs are designed to build in each girl the skills to collaborate and enquire at more sophisticated levels.

In recent years, MGC has developed a range of new facilities including The Gillard Centre, which houses a flexible learning, hospitality and meeting space, and provides river access for our exemplary rowing program. We have a newly refurbished library with more space, a new book collection and study rooms, and have just finished upgrading level three of the main building. The school also has three new netball courts to add to our wide range of sporting facilities. 

The College continues to improve the school infrastructure with plans for innovative new building works, such as the STEAM and the new 400 seat Performing Arts Centre to serve both the school and the wider Richmond community. We are also looking to continue the renovation of the main building, with plans for a level two upgrade.

The students of Melbourne Girls’ College are global citizens conscious of the unique lessons learned from attending a school that educates young people from diverse backgrounds and over sixty nationalities. Our educators are proven leaders, inspiring the students to dream and fulfil their potential. 

We are a place of welcome on the banks of the ancient Yarra River, and we welcome you.
