Education is not a race to the finish, and at the end of the journey you should have more than an ATAR.
Melbourne Girls Grammar (MGGS) provides a single-sex education that starts your daughter on the ideal trajectory for any future endeavours she wishes to pursue. The environment is welcoming, nurturing and supportive, and everything we do centres around each girl and what she wishes to achieve.
Thinking about your daughter’s future as soon as possible, means that very early on you can lay the foundation for an education founded on clear choices, the best fit and what’s best for her in the long run.
From the nurturing environment in the Barbara Tolson Early Learning Centre to the self-directed autonomy in the Senior Years Program, we provide a personalised learning experience. You can choose the best starting point for your daughter, as no matter which year group they enter we make sure every girl in our care feels safe and supported.
We provide a range of resources to ensure you have all the necessary information to make an informed decision. Browse our Student Programs listed below to access our downloadable program Handbooks, Frequently Asked Questions, articles and other helpful tools.
At Melbourne Girls Grammar, our girls are challenged to explore different ways of thinking, preparing them to navigate the unknowns of the future. As a school, we focus on educating our students in an agile way which instills the confidence, global competencies and determination that will see our students thrive in the jobs of tomorrow. Students are encouraged to harness every opportunity, to take the lead and influence others.
We are delighted to share the inspiring stories of six exceptional Old Grammarians (OGs), who are thriving in the world beyond our red brick walls.
Our OGs echo the sentiment that an education at MGGS has left them with not only a powerful network of lifelong friends, but also enduring themes of collaboration, social justice and empowerment.
