Melbourne Girls Grammar (MGGS) is a place where challenge and choice create opportunities for every girl to discover who she is meant to be. We have an outstanding history of providing girls with an exceptional education that equips them to thrive and lead in many life contexts. We are a forward-looking community and understand that our students must be prepared for life in an increasingly complex and globally connected world. Our focus is the development of young women with the confidence, skills and experience to excel in life beyond school.
Through an unwavering commitment to their personal best, girls at MGGS develop confidence and independence. Our Student Values provide the foundation for student service and leadership, and the world-class Learning Programs (Early Learning; Junior Years: Prep – Year 4; Middle Years: Years 5-8; Senior Years: Years 9-12) are specifically created to respond to the unique needs of contemporary girls. Our staff are passionate about teaching and learning. We have a commitment to quality professional development, and this means we are always exploring current research, thinking and new developments in education. How girls learn and how this impacts on what and how we teach are questions that promote innovation within our curriculum.
Enhancing an MGGS education are the diverse opportunities offered in the classroom and beyond. The depth of co-curricular programs offered in every Learning Program ensures that every girl explores and develops her areas of interest and passion to maximise her learning.
We believe that students flourish when they are engaged in a challenging academic program within a nurturing environment. Our approach is aimed at ensuring girls are keen to learn and to extend themselves, that they seek out opportunities and are solution-focused in their thinking. A key message at MGGS is that every girl is valued and each can contribute to the life of the MGGS community.
With more than 25 years’ experience in schools and broader education contexts, education has been a life’s passion for Catherine Misson. Catherine has particular interests in reframing schooling’s purpose, developing contemporary educational frameworks and environments, and creating a continuum for whole-of-child development.
Advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is a critical focus for Melbourne Girls Grammar. We value the importance of educating our young women in these areas and are committed to expanding and diversifying their opportunities in these fields of endeavour.
We champion the development of enterprising mindsets in our girls. Through innovative programs and internships we ensure our girls are equipped for a digital age in which their experience of work and wellbeing will be vastly different from that of past generations.
