Wilderness school art
As Wilderness School celebrates 140 years of exceptional education the future is brighter than ever, with the recent opening of an architecturally outstanding new Early Learning Centre and a new Lower Junior School and innovation centre on the way.

Blending heritage features and sophisticated modern design, the beautiful new spaces will enhance learning for girls from ELC to Year 12.

Globally-influenced Early Learning

The ELC is the result of a collaboration between educators and architects to craft a space specifically suited to the needs of young learners.

Mixing soaring ceilings and inimitable heritage features and brimming with natural light and abundant green space, the ELC is truly one-of-a-kind.

The ELC philosophy is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to education — a child-centred approach focusing on innovative teaching methods that foster creativity and critical thinking, emphasising the importance of the environment.

Connection and innovation

The development of the Lower Junior School will offer Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 students a warm and inviting environment where remarkable learning experiences are activated in flexible learning spaces.

The reimagined Margaret Brown Building will be a vibrant hub in the heart of campus, giving Wilderness girls access to a global network of partners, acting as an ecosystem for innovation in education.
