Melbourne Grammar School

In Australia, the independent school sector makes up about a third of the private school (non-public, non-government or non-state school) sector. The Catholic school sector makes up the remaining two thirds. The private school sector is 30% of all Australian schools including public, Catholic and government selective schools. Unlike catholic schools, independent schools are not affiliated with any church or other agency. Independent schools have highest fees but they have excellent academic performance, better facilities and richer co-curriculum programs. They are generally open entry unlike non-selective public schools which have school zones or catchment. They (parents) have higher social economic background.

The origins of Melbourne Grammar School lie in the vision and perseverance of Melbourne's first young Church of England Bishop, Charles Perry, who founded the Diocese of Melbourne. Charles Perry opened an 'experimental' grammar school in 1849 at St Peter's Eastern Hill (East Melbourne) to meet the growing educational needs of the young colony. Almost ten years later his dream of building a permanent, centrally located grammar school was realised with a grant from the Colonial Government of 15 acres on St Kilda Road. Melbourne Church of England Grammar School opened in 1858 with Dr John Bromby as the first Headmaster and 136 students enrolling in the first year.
