About Presbyterian Ladies' College (PLC)

PLC provides an outstanding education focusing on personal growth and leadership, where girls make lasting friendships and enjoy experiences that will shape the rest of their lives. They embrace the world around them and graduate with confidence, compassion and the values and mindset to make a difference in their world.

PLC has significantly transformed the campus with new facilities, including a new Learning Resource Centre; a new Year 7 Centre; a new hockey and tennis facility; new science laboratories; new Year 7, 8 and 9 classrooms; and a new Performing Arts Centre, opening in 2016.
Girls perform with Scotch College in theatrical productions and participate in choirs, jazz and rock bands, orchestras and musical ensembles. Outdoor education runs from Years 7 to 11 and we offer the full range of GSV sports.
PLC offers VCE and IB, and the Class of 2015 saw approximately 70 per cent of students achieve an ATAR of 90 or above, with two girls on 99.95.

Message from the Principal

PLC is one of Australia's preeminent schools for girls with a rich heritage and a history of being at the forefront of education for girls. Today PLC stands proudly on the shoulders of those who established this fine school over 140 years ago, with the same values, Christian foundation and belief in the importance of education and the capacity of young women.

Our staff are highly involved in their students’ learning journeys and focus on the individual student, nurturing and affirming girls so that they can achieve their personal goals. Whether they love sport, music, art, or academic pursuits, our teachers will all work together to help realise their potential, supporting their endeavours and enhancing their strengths. 

Our students are encouraged to stretch themselves and become critical thinkers, able to look outside themselves at the challenges facing their world and take responsibility for helping and contributing where they can. For over 140 years, PLC alumnae have been at the forefront of societal change, both within Australia and overseas.
