Principal's Welcome

Building our Future

Since its establishment in 1886, MLC School has sought to extend and challenge its students, as well as 'being prepared to make all the necessary additions and improvements for the proper accommodation of scholars'. (Source: Sydney Morning Herald Advertisement, 23 January 1886.)

The School’s founders understood that great learning takes place in great spaces, and 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 school is in the process of creating a new Senior School learning space, to be completed in 2019.

MLC School is a proudly non-selective school, where students are encouraged to pursue their interests and the academic pathway that suits them best.

The school offers both the Higher School Certificate (HSC) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB). We are very proud of the academic achievements of our students.

Beyond this, our students not only do well at examinations, they do well at life – you can read about our many kinds of success stories here.
