Discover Melbourne Girls Grammar

Melbourne Girls Grammar is a place where challenge and choice create opportunities for every student to discover who she is meant to be.

A leader in girls’ education since 1893, our School has built an outstanding reputation for excellence, enabling students to develop with confidence and independence.

World-class learning programs, state-of-the-art facilities and an extensive co-curricular program inspire each student to achieve their best in the classroom and beyond.

To educate is to make an intervention into the lives of others. When we intervene, we do so with certain assumptions about the value of what we are doing and why. Building students' capacity for future readiness is a moral-ethical learning endeavour and one that cannot be left to chance.

To achieve this, Melbourne Girls Grammar promotes a progressive, contemporary community of practice committed to providing personalised high quality curriculum, wellbeing and co-curricular programs that enable lifelong learning for every student. We are future focused and committed to inspiring our Grammarians and equipping them with the values, knowledge and skills to be ready to make their mark on the world.
