Welcome to PLC Perth

PLC Perth is more than a School. When your daughter joins us, your entire family becomes a member of a community rich in history, strong in its commitment to the values of compassion and respect, dedicated to intellectual challenge and inquiry and which has a culture of participation, resilience and courage.

These values – integrity, learning, community and effort – forged in 1915 by our Founders, remain true to PLC Perth today as we educate girls to be global citizens and empower them to lead a principled life.

PLC Perth is the only girls’ school in Western Australia to offer three pathways to tertiary education – the world-recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme, the WA Certificate of Education (WACE) pathway and the Vocational Education and Training  (VET) pathway.

In our Junior School, our IB Primary Years Programme is a curriculum and pedagogy that focuses on developing the whole child – academically and social-emotionally.

Our world-class wellbeing centre – the PLC Lighthouse – delivers the health and wellbeing curriculum in a state-of-the-art facility where the focus is on feeling good, functioning well and doing good for others. With its gymnasium, circuit and movement rooms and wellbeing spaces, students are encouraged to use these spaces before and after school, during study and lunch breaks.

In 2022, we were pleased to open our purpose-built Music Building which provides exceptional learning spaces for our instrumental and classroom programmes, choirs, and ensembles.

It is my privilege to invite interested families to tour our campus, which sits between the beautiful Cottesloe Beach and the shores of the Swan River, and see for yourself the PLC difference.
