Our History

From our beginning in 1910, St Margaret’s College has been a very special place for girls, their families and our teachers and staff.

Empowering girls

Empowering girls to learn, live and lead lies at the heart of St Margaret’s College’s ambition. In a rapidly evolving social, economic, technological and environmental landscape, we adapt continuously to ensure our students are ready to make their way in the world, while upholding values that remain as important today as they did when our College was founded over a century ago.
