Facilities and Campus Map

...a vibrant hub of learning and activity

For over 130 years, PLC Sydney has been an inner west sanctuary where girls are free to nurture their interests and strengths, challenge themselves, and flourish academically. 

The campus is a vibrant hub of learning and activity. Girls hover over Bunsen burners in the Science labs or read in the beautiful gardens near the Turtle Pond. Hockey players train on Drummond Field, while rowers head to practice on the Parramatta River. 

In the Art Room, Junior girls create masterpieces, while budding biologists tend the vegetable garden beds or explore insects with one of our Animal Exhibits Officers in the Invertebrate House.

The Pipes and Drums perform on the Sunken Lawn after school, while our Drama students rehearse under the branches of our iconic camphor laurel tree, or on the stage of the Audrey Keown Theatre. 

There’s an unmistakable feeling when you enter the gates at PLC Sydney. No matter what you love to do, we aim to create an environment that challenges, excites and engages you.

We invite you to explore our school and its wonderful facilities. 


The Gateway and Hamilton Precinct

The Precinct includes:

  • State of the art classrooms and large breakout spaces for Years 3 to 6
  • Hamilton Hall; specialist science and technology innovation labs
  • Invertebrate House, Turtle Pond and Hatchery
  • Food gardens
  • Native stingless bee hotel, nature gardens and playground
  • Hamilton Multi-Purpose Centre with sprung floor for junior aerobics and basketball, plus after hours co-curricular activities
  • Main reception and administration centre for the College.


The aquatic institute features two indoor heated pools and a purpose-built weights and fitness room. Learn-to-swim activities take place in the shallow 12-metre teaching pool, while more proficient swimmers, including the elite squads, use the adjacent eight-lane competition swimming and water polo pool.


Students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 attend lessons with specialist tutors to enhance their speech and performance skills at the College’s speech centre. The speech program prepares students to be confident speakers who effectively articulate their thoughts, knowledge and values to others in a public forum.


The research centre embraces digital literacy and investigation using the latest software programs and hardware devices alongside a collection of books and other hard copy resources. 

Whether operating from workstations or using their own laptops and electronic devices, students have access to more than 1,000 subscription-based, subject-oriented websites, as well as a wide variety of free resources. A variety of open plan areas, including a ground floor café, provide opportunities for collaborative learning, while a number of smaller rooms facilitate quiet study.


This superbly equipped performing arts centre houses the 550-seat Audrey Keown Theatre with state-of-the-art lighting and audio, a recording studio, a music computer laboratory for composing and editing, orchestral rooms, drama and rehearsal spaces and general teaching spaces.


PLC Sydney transformed the original Croydon Hotel into an impressive centre for art, design and technology, with a professional exhibition gallery. Students engage in art and design in animation, ceramics, digital media, food technology, painting, photography, printmaking, textiles and 3D forms studios. They also work in design and production, using wood, plastics and fine metals. The creative works reflect traditions and current trends in their chosen medium.

The gymnasium and multi-purpose hall has a world-class sprung floor and is used by student athletes for training and competition. It is also home to PLC Sydney’s gymnastics club, which trains on a full complement of gymnastics equipment.
