MLC School is an independent, non-selective Uniting Church school for girls from Pre- Kindergarten to Year 12 in the Inner West of Sydney. From Pre-Kindergarten through to their time as Senior School students, MLC School girls dare to be more. In 2020, MLC School was the highest-ranked IB School in Australia.
Led by a highly professional staff under the guidance of Principal Lisa Moloney, girls are challenged and encouraged to question traditional perceptions and roles of women and are instilled with the skills and confidence to take their place in an ever-changing society. MLC School prepares girls for a life of learning by motivating them to pursue excellence, demonstrate integrity, celebrate diversity, embrace world citizenship and live with humility. A wide selection of subject choices, as well as an extensive co-curricular program aims to empower girls to be self-reliant and play an active role in their futures.
The award-winning Senior Centre, opened in 2019, takes classroom practice to a new level and is reflective of modern workplaces. The aim is to equip girls with the skills to be successful in a collaborative, team environment and to be comfortable in open-planned, flexible spaces designed for impromptu group work sessions.
Year 7 to Year 10 are pivotal years at MLC School where girls experience Immersive Learning journeys that broaden each year. The experiences, that may take place locally, regionally, or abroad, aim to broaden horizons, encourage resilience and foster a growth mindset to underpin success in their senior years of schooling. Each immersive learning experience is unique in its design, but they all have some common threads that link the experiences together. Academically, each girl takes responsibility for her own path in the final years, and this is a crucial stage in her journey towards becoming an independent, fearless and empowered young woman.
HSC and IB in the Senior School
Girls can choose between the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, with nearly 40 per cent of students choosing to study the IB. In 2021, the School was named No 1 IB School in Australia and a Top 50 Global IB School. Over 67 MLC School girls have achieved the IB Diploma score of 45/45 since the programme was introduced in 2002, and all girls consistently score well.
