Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College has been a regional provider of girl’s education since 1940. The College’s unique position as the only government girls’ school outside of Melbourne means that there is a keen demand for places. Its centrality to transport allows students from as far a field as Werribee, Colac and the Bellarine Peninsula to attend.

Matthew Flinders actively promotes and encourages student participation in decision-making. Through their own representative council, membership of College council and its subcommittees, and school leadership positions, students provide a valued contribution to College planning and review.

Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College has excellent facilities including a recently refurbished library, ‘state of the art’ computer pods and an excellent Year 12 complex, which provides computer facilities, a student common room, as well as specialist and general classrooms.
