Virtual Tour

Unable to visit us on campus? Take a virtual discovery tour instead! Let our Admissions team take you on a personalised virtual tour in real time. Using the latest technology, it is like walking through the actual campus. You still get to tour the facilities, visit classrooms, meet with teachers and ask us questions. This is ideal for international and interstate families or if you cannot make it onto campus for whatever reason.

Take a Virtual Tour Now - Let our wonderful Admissions team, who are the eyes and ears of our campus, show you around via video. To express your interest in an individual video tour, please contact our Admissions team.

There are no limits to what students can achieve in a girls' school. At MLC, girls are surrounded by female role models who help them see who they can be. We want to give every girl the space to be seen and heard. We want her to take risks, make mistakes and get involved. We want her to be her authentic self and discover what it is that truly excites her.

The Benefits of an All-Girls’ Education

Research provides compelling evidence that a girls-only education leads to higher academic achievement, greater confidence and more participation in STEM subjects. Girls are presented with activities and academic opportunities without gender stereotyping, which results in greater self-esteem, more grit and the ability to achieve their full potential.

Students who receive an all-girls’ education are also more likely to select typically male dominated subjects, take up leadership opportunities and ask more questions than in a co-ed classroom, trying everything without fear of failure. At MLC, our wellbeing, leadership, development and educational programs are all designed specifically to cater to the needs of girls and set them on the path towards their purposeful futures.

Scholarships and Prizes

MLC has been awarding scholarships since 1909 to acknowledge and reward the strength of recipients and take into account their potential to contribute creatively to the wider service of the community. Read on to explore our current scholarships, the application process and frequently asked questions.


MLC Scholarship Program

Each year, MLC offers several scholarships of varying concessions to both current MLC girls as well as future students entering different year levels. These include:

  • Academic Scholarships for entry in Years 5, 6, 7 and 10 
  • Music Scholarships for entry in Years 5-10 
  • Boarding Scholarships for entry in Years 7-10 
  • Community Scholarships for entry in Year 7

All scholarship applicants, including Music and Boarding Scholarship applicants, must sit the Academic Scholarship test. Retention of a scholarship is conditional upon the holding maintaining high standards in achievement and conduct throughout her schooling at MLC.

Types of Scholarships

Music Scholarships

MLC boasts an outstanding Music program with an international reputation for excellence in performance. Music Scholarships are available to girls entering the College from Years 5 to 10 by audition.

Boarding Scholarships

MLC invites girls who live in regional Western Australia to apply for a Boarding Scholarship. This scholarship provides a Boarding fee reduction of varying values. Successful candidates entering Years 7 to 10 hold their scholarship until graduation at the end of Year 12. 

Welcome to Methodist Ladies’ College.

We are a community that believes deeply in the empowerment that comes from an all-girls’ education. Our world will be healthier, safer, more innovative and more equitable when girls receive the education they so truly deserve.

Here at MLC, we are committed to enabling each girl to develop confidence in her capabilities and the determination to realise that she can indeed be an agent of change in her own life and in the lives of others.

With the support of dedicated and outstanding staff, our students are encouraged to be curious in their learning, embrace new opportunities, challenge what they think they are capable of and reach courageously beyond their limits in their strive for personal excellence.

In a world that is diverse, complex and changing, MLC aims to provide experiences that prepare our graduates for a future we can only imagine. Regular review of curriculum is undertaken to ensure our offering develops the skills, capabilities and attitudes that will enable our graduates to be future ready – ready to act, adapt, communicate, collaborate and lead.

MLC is a place where everyone deserves to feel a sense of belonging. Anchored by our values of Integrity, Mastery, Enterprise and Justice and inspired by our motto Per Ardua Ad Alta; through striving to the heights, our community is inclusive and grounded, embracing all manner of diversity knowing full well that what makes us different, makes us stronger. Our MLC Collegians are active within the daily life of the College and provides a strong network of support that remains lifelong for our graduates.

There is so much on offer for everyone here at MLC. I invite you to visit us in person so that you can see our College in action and experience first-hand the vibrancy and warmth of our community.

I look forward to welcoming you.
