Location Profile

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

The College is constantly evolving programs and learning schedules to ensure students are future-ready with an emphasis on persistence, team work, respect for diversity and personal best. Our 1400 students are taught and nurtured by excellent staff, parents, peers and mentors.

The achievements of MGC are certainly in academic results but a broader definition of success ensures social, emotional, sporting and artistic success are central to being a student of the College. The English, Humanities, Languages, STEAM, International and Wellbeing Programs are designed to build in each girl the skills to collaborate and inquire at ever 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. The College currently has plans for a STEAM and new 400 seat Performing Arts Centre to serve both the school and the wider Richmond community.
The students of Melbourne Girls’ College are global citizens conscious of the unique lessons attending a school educating young people from diverse backgrounds and over sixty nationalities can bring. Our community, in collaboration with key tertiary and local partners, is an inquiring, outward-looking school of excellence.
