Melbourne Grammar is an Anglican school founded in 1858 by the first Bishop of Melbourne, Charles Perry.
From Prep to Year 6, coeducational classes are provided at the Caulfield Junior School, Grimwade House. Year 7 and 8 boys attend Wadhurst, the Middle School based at St Kilda Road in South Yarra. Students in Years 9–12 learn at the adjoining Senior School. Year 7-12 students attend as both day students and boarders.
The Melbourne Grammar School Archives contains a unique collection of items that trace the history of the School from when it opened on the 7 April 1858 to today.
Archived items are stored in a purpose-built facility at our St Kilda Road campus.
We present some of these items in our Archives Gallery, generally in a thematic manner. These displays often depict some of the most significant events in the life of the School over the past 160+ years. Visitors are welcome but only with an appointment.
