Help our girls continue their PLC education. Donate Now to our PLC Student Hardship Appeal.

PLC consistently enjoys outstanding academic results which reflect the hard work of our girls and the committed staff who support them each day.

Excellence underpins everything we do and our outstanding reputation for academia flows from high-end results that students achieve in WACE and IB Diploma each year.

PLC girls have the confidence and conviction that women can, and should, make a difference in the world.

Academic Scholarships are awarded on the results of a competitive examination and a personal interview for short-listed candidates
