Presbyterian Ladies’ College

Presbyterian Ladies’ College was founded in 1915 and has since sustained an international reputation for academic excellence and outstanding success in preparing young women to lead active, principled lives.

The School educates girls from Pre-Kindergarten through to Year 12 with boarding students from Years 7 to 12.

At PLC, every girl is given the opportunity to:

  • develop an appreciation of intellectual challenge and a love of lifelong learning
  • gain the confidence to question, challenge and be creative
  • give and receive warmth and human understanding, and
  • belong to a community in which to experience the beauty and joy of life itself
  • The School prides itself on being an influential learning community. PLC was one of the first schools in Western Australia to introduce a comprehensive laptop programme and to develop a Middle School. PLC was also amongst the first schools to introduce the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes – with the Primary Years Programme being adopted by the Junior School in 2004 and the Middle Years Programme being introduced to Year 7s the following year. In 2011, PLC again was amongst the first schools to introduce the IB Diploma as a choice for students in Years 11 and 12.

    PLC has also been recognized for its innovative information technology programme in the Australian Awards for Teaching Excellence.

    A non-selective entry school, PLC consistently achieves well in academic oerformance.  Most students are destined for a tertiary education in Australia or internationally.

    PLC is a vibrant and engaging community strengthened by parental support and firmly committed to issues of social justice, reconciliation and civic engagement.
