Founded in 1886, MLC School is an independent girls' school of the Uniting Church. Our mission is to educate young women to be fearless thinkers with moral courage and compassion, to be agents of change in their lives and in the lives of others.

MLC School offers a fully integrated Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 educational experience that is based on in-depth knowledge of how girls learn best. MLC School girls are fostered to be free-thinking women, who challenge the norm by taking measured risks. Girls attend MLC School from across Sydney, and they reflect the diversity of faith and cultural backgrounds evident in our global city. Difference is encouraged through MLC School's academic and co-curricular programs, which recognise and celebrate diversity. These programs allow girls to discover their academic, creative and physical strengths, reward curiosity and provide a safe framework for experimentation and risk-taking.


MLC School is conveniently located 11 kilometres from the city of Sydney and has easy access to bus, train and expressway links.


MLC School continues to achieve at the highest level internationally in the IB Diploma.

Our most recent IB cohort delivered an outstanding result, with two students attaining a perfect score of 45, placing them among the top academic achievers worldwide. This brings the total number of perfect scores at MLC School to 41 over the past nine years.

MLC School Middle Years students engage in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). The MYP is a comprehensive and rigorous five-year course of study, undertaken by all students in Year 6 to Year 10. Students continue to follow the content of the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabuses for the Australian Curriculum while the MYP provides the framework in which it is taught. The MYP does not provide content but rather the manner in which the subjects are taught and sets international benchmarks for learning.


At MLC School, we have a proud tradition of offering high quality co-curricular programs that cater to the needs and interests of the individual. These programs support our student’s academic, social, emotional and physical wellbeing, as well as fostering supportive, collaborative and creative communities across the whole school.


While MLC School has formal entry points of Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Year 3, Year 5, Year 6, Year 7, Year 9 and Year 10, new students are welcome to enter the school at other year levels, provided places are available, and at the discretion of the Principal.
