Research both here and overseas has confirmed that girls’ educational success can be improved through single sex education.
The research has shown that girls working in an environment without the distraction of boys can be more successful. There are also more opportunities for girls to take up leadership roles and to engage in curriculum that explores the experiences of being female and understand better the challenges that face women and girls in all societies.
There are also studies that suggest that single sex learning environments for boys can also lead to greater success at school. (In the Co-educational campus there are some ‘boys only’ classes.)
The commitment to maintaining a girls’ only campus was made when the local high schools, one of which was Gepps Cross Girls’ High School, amalgamated to form the Roma Mitchell Secondary College.
