Penrhos College

Como WA, Perth, South Western Suburbs

Penrhos College is a Uniting Church day and boarding school for girls, Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12, located just south of the river in Como, Perth, Western Australia.

We believe girls are given the best opportunity to thrive in a single-sex environment, free from gender stereotypes and expectations. Our focus is on nurturing and inspiring the mind, heart, body and spirit of each student to promote strength of character and courage of conviction. We seek to enable each student to explore her potential, find her niche and ultimately, to move into adulthood with the confidence to navigate all of life’s opportunities and challenges successfully.

Penrhos students consistently achieve excellent academic results. We are recognised for our comprehensive and integrated STEM program, as well as for growing leadership and engagement in STEM matters across the education sector. Penrhos College was the first to be awarded the Governor’s School STEM Awards in both the Primary and Secondary categories in 2017, after which we stepped down in order to allow other schools to shine.

Our new Science and Innovation Centre will be under construction through 2020, due for completion in 2021. This latest centre of excellence will inspire girls to pursue their personal bests in an open and collaborative learning environment, in preparation for a lifetime of exploration and enquiry.
