Confirming our plans for the future

Melbourne Grammar School has recently published Towards 2030, which sets out the School’s strategic intentions.

It affirms our mission, vision and values and defines our future priorities.

Towards 2030 affirms our mission, vision and values and defines our future priorities.

The priorities are:

A holistic education

We will educate and nurture the whole person, fostering each student’s intellectual, spiritual, physical, psychological and emotional growth.

Exceptional staff

We will offer an environment that attracts, supports and retains excellent staff and where staff are motivated by our aspirations and aligned with our values. We will be committed to their professional development and wellbeing.

An engaged school community

We will build and sustain a School community of positive and enduring relationships in which people embrace our values.

Embrace the wider world

We will ensure a Melbourne Grammar School education prepares students to take their place in the world with confidence.

Sustain quality & accessibility

In the face of rising costs, economic and other uncertainties, we will support initiatives that ensure delivery of the highest quality education, always ensuring that our School has the capacity to sustain diverse and inclusive student and staff cohorts. We will ensure we have sustainable social, environmental, and financial practices in place.

As part of this latter priority, and with the support of the School community, we hope to embark on four major building projects that support our aspirations and help us to continue to prepare students for the world beyond the School gates.

Our initial focus will be on creating a Centre for Humanity on the South Yarra campus, and a new building for Lower Primary students at Grimwade House. Later, we hope to redevelop the Strickland Physical Education Centre, and construct an underground black box theatre adjacent to The Old Melburnians War Memorial Hall and the Shelmerdine Studio thereby extending our current performing arts precinct. 

In launching the plan, Andrew Michelmore AO (OM 1970), Chair of Council and Philip Grutzner (OM 1981), Headmaster said: “We believe Towards 2030 is a confident response to the changing nature of the world around us and it builds on the essence of Melbourne Grammar: the pursuit of excellence in all its forms.”
