PLC girls achieve amazing, life-changing academic results.

Our unique approach to girls’ learning and development encourages every student to pursue her interests, reaching beyond her limits with the help of staff who believe passionately in supporting her through every stage of development.

Our academic success

PLC's long-term academic results speak for themselves. 

Though we are a non-selective school and welcome girls from all walks of life, we consistently achieve some of the finest results of any school in Australia. Since 2000, more than 70% of PLC girls have achieved an ATAR of 90+, placing two out of every three girls in the top 10% of all students in Australia.

This oustanding and class-leading performance is achieved through the excellence of our teaching staff and the care they take, the diligence of our students and the support of their families, friends and peers.

The College congratulates the Class of 2017 who contributed to every area of school life, in and outside the classroom.

Beyond ATARs and study scores, we are very proud of our Year 12 cohort and the strength of their leadership, service to others and the contribution of each student to enrich our school community.

Our Year 12’s graduate as the leaders of tomorrow and it is our ongoing privilege to be an integral part of shaping their lives.
