Melbourne Girls College
Melbourne Girls' College was established in January 1994 with an enrolment of approximately 300 students.
The site on which the College is housed was initially that of the Richmond Secondary College, which itself was established around 1970, and ceased to exist in 1992.
Although the College was established as an entirely new entity with its own unique identity and mission, many of the founding staff and initial intake of students came from three other schools which had ceased to exist. These were:
Richmond Girls' High School
Malvern Girls' High School
