Applying

We welcome your application for your child to attend Melbourne Grammar School.

Our students come from a broad range of backgrounds, and have varied academic and wider interests. Demand for places is high, so we encourage you to apply as early as you can. Applications are accepted from birth.

Our intake levels are:

  • Grimwade House: main intake in Prep, with a small intake in Year 3

  • Wadhurst: intake in Year 7

  • Senior School: intake in Year 9

  • Boarding places are available from Years 7 – 12 with students normally commencing during Years 7 to 10

  • Indigenous students: Indigenous Bursaries are available from Years 7 – 12 with students normally commencing during Years 7 to 10. Indigenous students not seeking a bursary are welcome to apply for a place at the School during normal intake years.

  • Places for International students are available from Years 7 – 12 with students normally commencing during Years 7 to 10

Opportunities to enter in other year levels are dependent on places becoming available.

Before applying 

Before applying, we encourage you to contact our Admissions Office to discuss your interest in Melbourne Grammar School, determine availability and organise a campus or boarding precinct tour. 

In particular, we suggest families interested in securing boarding, Indigenous bursary or international student places contact the Admissions Office to discuss admissions procedures as these vary from the standard process.
