Empowering young women

Girls’ Education Campus

Dedicated to leading, inspiring and shaping confident young women

Why a girls only Campus?

As part of our commitment to excellence in education and optimising schooling outcomes, we are
proud to offer a girls’ only school campus within Roma Mitchell Secondary College designed to
accommodate 500 girls from years 7 to 12.

The RMSC Girls’ Education Campus focuses on promoting leadership, academic excellence and
empowerment, while offering all the same subjects and facilities available to students in the Co-
education Campus, including a focus on STEM subjects, the International Baccalaureate Diploma
Program, an Enrichment Program and the Specialist Sports Program.

Research both here and overseas has confirmed that girls’ educational success can be improved through single sex education.

The research has shown that for some girls working in an environment without the distraction of boys can lead to more success. 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 to better understand the challenges that women and girls face in all societies.

The curriculum for Roma Mitchell Secondary College is based on two key curriculum frameworks. They are:

Transition to High School through Middle Schooling

To support year 7, 8 and 9 students to be successful and happy in their transition to High School, we have a middle school structure that minimises the number of teachers students have in their first two years.

The students’ Care Group teacher will also teach them for at least two other subjects. This facilitates more effective communication between teachers and families and establishes strong relationships to support learning.
