Our beautiful College is set on five hectares of historic grounds and gardens

….a place of passion and purpose

In Senior School we’ll encourage you to spread your wings, dream big and take charge of your own learning, all within a safe and supportive environment. The only limit is your imagination.

From your first day of school to your last, PLC Sydney will nurture your natural curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.

We are a school with a rich heritage and tradition. We value creativity, empathy, resilience and intellectual curiosity. As a school community we work hard to reach each student. We want all of our girls to have a deep sense of belonging and purpose. Our girls look out for each other and we seek to foster kindness and generosity of spirit. Mutual respect is high and we lighten the load of disciplined study with fun and laughter. 

Academic studies play an important part of who we are at PLC Sydney. But more than this, we value the whole child where academic, creative, sporting and personal achievements are celebrated. 

We seek to maximise each girls’ potential. We encourage all our students to take ownership of their learning through active participation and engagement in both their academic studies and co-curricular activities. We support each girl as she develops the skills, knowledge and values required for her to make meaningful contributions to her world. 

Based on our well-being framework; 'being, belonging and becoming', we seek to assist each girl to grow. We are confident our students can encourage each other and handle the triumphs and disappointments that life brings.
