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.
