It is well serviced by public transport and is in easy walking distance of the Central Market, the main shopping areas, and all of the city's attractions. A brief history of the College Muirden College was established by Mr William Muirden in July 1900. He believed that a school should offer general educational subjects as well as vocational subjects. The College grew quickly and from 1912 had over 500 students annually. Since 1950 over 30,000 students have enrolled, attesting to the good teaching and personal attention Muirden College has provided. Muirden Today The College is quite different to other secondary schools. Opportunity and freedom are two features students experience while studying with us. We do not have uniforms, and students are expected to share responsibility for their learning with their teachers. It is a much more informal environment than a ‘traditional’ school, but with academic study being the primary focus. Students are encouraged to set and strive for their own personal goals, regardless of their social or cultural background. They are helped by a team of highly qualified, specialist teachers. Teachers work closely with students creating a nurturing, relaxed environment, offering one-on-one support when needed. Small classes enable a degree of flexibility in the teaching of curriculum allowing teachers to respond to the needs of students on an individual level. This supportive and cooperative atmosphere, along with the lesson structure, helps students to make the transition between school and university.
