We are thrilled to announce a new Lower Junior School redevelopment that will refine the southern precinct of our school.

Looking ahead to an exceptional future...

Wilderness School's Masterplan will define a new era at Wilderness School. Blending heritage features and modern design, our beautiful new spaces will enhance exceptional learning outcomes for all of our girls.

Stage 1 of the Masterplan – our new Early Learning Centre – is now open. Find out more here.

Stage 2 of the redevelopment has now commenced, set to transform our campus with a new Lower Junior School and a vibrant new innovation hub.

Collaboration and innovation...

The Coach House

The Coach House will offer our Receptions, Year 1 and 2 students a warm and inviting environment where high-quality learning experiences are activated in breakout and flexible learning spaces.

Inspired by the surrounding neighbouring context and reminiscent of Italian Hilltops, the scale of the spaces reflects the developmental stage of the girls and presents a playful yet charming “stepping stone” for students as they transition from Reception up to Year 2. Here our girls will have the opportunity to gain and consolidate a solid foundation for their learning as they are encouraged to be curious, to pose questions and express their thinking.

Margaret Brown House

The Margaret Brown Building will be a vibrant hub in the heart of campus, giving Wilderness girls access to our global network of old scholars, leading enterprises and top universities.

It will act as an ecosystem for innovation in education.

A place of teamwork and collaboration for our connected and engaged community of learners, it will help us shape the future of education, nurturing Wilderness School's position as a progressive global leader.

School Gymnasium Annexe

The expansion of the School Gymnasium will include a new frontage along Hawkers Road that will support the health and wellbeing of our students.

Offering a flexible movement and additional fitness space, the two-level annexe will house the relocated staff amenities and become a fundamental sports facility used for both curricular and co-curricular activities.

This space will allow our girls to develop their individual potential and will enrich their physical and emotional wellbeing.

Supporting Our Future

We prepare our girls to become creative, confident and independent women, ready to improve and enrich the world. Our buildings are not about bricks and mortar. They are about what happens inside.

We invite you to imagine the possibilities and consider partnering with us in the development of this exciting new precinct, for both this generation and the next.

Wilderness School has always been committed to developing learning facilities that empower each of our girls to be the best they can be. We believe this master plan embraces the new, through its future-focused and best practice learning design, while holding true to the foundations that have nurtured and empowered Wilderness girls since 1884.

We are pleased to be working with Adelaide architecture firm, Grieve Gillett Andersen and construction company, SARAH, who are bringing to life the innovative structures, as well as alterations and additions to existing beautiful buildings.
