Preserving Tradition, Building for the Future

Midleton College, standing proudly on the same site since its founding in 1696, is a testament to the enduring legacy of educational excellence and community spirit. The main school building, completed in 1717, remains at the heart of our campus, surrounded by a blend of historic and modern structures that reflect the school’s growth and evolution over centuries. The Heritage Growth Fund is dedicated to the continuous development and preservation of our campus, ensuring that Midleton College remains a vibrant and inspiring place for learning and growth.

Honouring Our History

Midleton College has developed its infrstructure over the year including the Jameson Science Block, the Cairns’ playing fields, the Colton Building, modern boarding accommodations, and the Trevor West Sports Hall. These facilities have been pivotal in providing a comprehensive educational experience for our students. The Heritage Growth Fund aims to build on this legacy, honouring our history while looking forward to future developments that will enhance our campus.
