Welcome to St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School admissions page. We look forward to assisting you with your child’s enrolment at our School.
Located in the leafy south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School is an independent non-denominational school providing co-education from the Early Years to Year 6 and single gender education from Year 7 to Year 12. This means that St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School operates as three schools within a unique one school model. The three schools are: St Margaret’s Junior School for boys and girls from Pre-Prep to Year 6;St Margaret’s Senior School for girls from Years 7 to 12; Berwick Grammar School for boys from Years 7 to 12.
