Courage starts here

At Penrhos College, we have a vision to revolutionise girls’ education, so we can all live a future without boundaries. With a ‘limitless’ purpose, we put our students at the centre of everything we do.

Penrhos College is an all girls’ school, in the faith of the Uniting Church. We are committed to educating our students for respectful and responsible participation in an increasingly diverse and fast-evolving global community. Equally, we are committed to the promotion of justice and equity in learning, working and social environments that are affirming and inclusive, where each individual feels safe and valued.

Girls of all religious, cultural and gender identities are warmly welcomed here. Our community respects and honours diversity, including (but not limited to) age, ethnicity, family structure, identity, race, culture, physical ability and religion.

Junior School

Our Junior School vision is to establish a future-focused learning culture that empowers students to become independent, engaged, fulfilled, holistic, lifelong learners. We promote developmentally appropriate cognitive growth, socio-emotional development and lifelong learning for students in Years 3 - 6. High quality education and care set a positive trajectory for every child, helping to ensure her transition into Secondary School is a smooth one.

Secondary School

Our goal is to provide limitless opportunities for our girls; through a multidimensional, holistic approach to education. Helping all girls to achieve their personal best is not just our goal, it is our strong commitment. We recognise each girl will have individual strengths and passions and our teachers ensure they personalise the learning journey for each student.


To create a nurturing, intimate and safe space for your daughter, our boarding facilities house 100 girls from Years 7 to 12.

Living on campus provides students with a plethora of opportunities to engage in extracurricular activities, develop leadership skills and form lifelong friendships. Our state-of-the-art facilities offer a wide range of options, from sports and arts to clubs and community service initiatives.
