Melbourne Girls Grammar School has an outstanding history of providing girls with an education that equips them to thrive in their many life contexts.
Through an unwavering commitment to academic excellence, girls at MGGS develop the confidence, independence and an orientation for action. Our School values are the foundation for student service and leadership, and every MGGS girl is inspired to live an optimistic and productive life.
Our learning programs are recognised as world class: research and innovation are a serious investment at MGGS ensuring that we understand the evolving needs of girls, develop quality C21st curriculum, and provide professional learning for our passionate and expert teachers.
We are a diverse community, blessed with a location that gives our students easy access to the cultural and sports precincts of Melbourne. Our networks of Old Grammarians and friends of MGGS provide us with partnerships that extend the classroom experience. Our students are able to pursue learning mentored by experts in professions as diverse as our girls’ talents and interests.
A distinctive part of an MGGS education is the high level of participation in co curricular activities. Our students understand that challenging yourself is the key to positive self growth. They maintain a broad academic program alongside their involvement in Music, Drama, Sport, Debating, passion clubs and volunteer work.
JUNIOR YEARS: P – 4
Within the leafy surrounds of South Yarra, our Morris Hall campus is home for our Prep – Year 4 girls.
The environment is architecturally designed to create a place of enchantment that promotes wonder, possibility and challenge for students of the 21st century. It is a beautiful and welcoming place for our girls and their families.
Extending the immediate experience at Morris Hall is the outstanding landscape of the city of Melbourne. Museums, galleries, parks, and theatres are within walking distance or a short tram ride. We believe that an education for life takes our girls exploring well beyond the learning studio.
In the Junior Years we want to inspire our girls to be curious, to extend their interest in the world around them, and to confidently encounter new situations. Our girls are
encouraged to embrace learning opportunities that stretch them to think, collaborate and create.
The Junior Years Program integrates academic learning with social development. Positive relationships and personal responsibility are the foundations for healthy human development. Our girls experience a sense of community anchored on shared values.
Learning begins with strong foundations in literacy and numeracy, but to develop the whole person this must be extended through diverse and rich curriculum. Specialist teachers provide creative and enriching learning
experiences in Music, The Arts, Italian, Science, Physical Education and Information Literacy. Outside, the girls explore, play, and imagine.
