Involvement, empowerment, discovery and independence are key themes in Middle School (Years 9 and 10).


In Year 10, the focus turns to future pathways and student choice is broadened, including the opportunity to apply to take on a VCE Unit 1 and 2 subject. Importantly, the study of an additional language beyond English is maintained, keeping open all Senior School pathways.

Middle School students are at an age where they are beginning to pave their own pathways. MLC understands that girls need special care to help them leap ahead in learning and in life, whatever their interests and talents. We have specialised programs that help girls foster their independence and understand decision making, especially as they head into Senior School.

Remote Learning

One of the defining times of Middle School is the opportunity to experience MLC Marshmead, our dedicated off-campus living experience - often spoken about by the students for many years afterwards!

Remote Living

MLC Marshmead is the College’s remote residential campus, located on 114 hectares in East Gippsland’s beautiful Croajingolong National Park. For eight weeks, a group of Year 9 students live together, learning about themselves, their community and the environment.

Community Living

MLC Marshmead is a small village. Within nine self-contained student houses, each featuring comfortable bedrooms, a living area, kitchen, bathroom and solar hot water unit, students manage their own cooking, cleaning, heating and cooling under the guidance of caring and experienced staff.

Curriculum Highlights

At MLC Marshmead, students undertake a range of integrated units that tie in with the Kew-based Middle School curriculum and key learning areas, including sustainability and personal development. Students attend formal classes and the curriculum studied makes use of the village infrastructure, local environment and communities.

A World of Choice

Academic programs in Middle School are designed to give students a balanced curriculum that will provide access to the full range of pathways offered in the Senior School. Within a framework of ‘guided choice’, students are encouraged to develop areas of interest and try new subjects.
