Building our Future – New Senior School Building

Senior School Building December 2018  


Since its establishment as Methodist Ladies' College in 1886, MLC School has understood that great learning takes place in great spaces. Since that time, the school has regularly updated facilities to remain in tune with the ambitious thinking that has always been the hallmark of MLC School.

Following the completion of the Junior School, Aquatic Centre, refurbished Art and Design Centre and Café 1886, the new Senior School learning space will open for students in Term 1, 2019.

The new Senior School building has been designed by Bligh Voller Nield (BVN) and embraces a new pedagogical model valuing collaborative, technology-enabled learning. Learning spaces include Science laboratories, media booths, break-out areas, quiet rooms, external collaborative spaces, IT centre with genius bar and a new auditorium with acoustic panelling. The open ceiling will provide natural light to all teaching spaces and students will enjoy more green areas throughout the school.
