PLC Sydney is a non-selective school for girls from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12, offering a broad curriculum to students from a diverse range of backgrounds. Boarding is available from Year 7.

Founded in 1888 and situated on 4.4 hectares at Croydon, in Sydney’s inner west region, the College features beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding 19th century heritage buildings and many modern, state-of-the-art facilities. When PLC Sydney first opened its doors the entire school consisted of 39 girls. Today the College is home to nearly 1400 students.

PLC Sydney educates young women from the basis of a Christian world-view, ensuring they are equipped to contribute not only to the school community but also to society at large. Our vision is to have graduates who are confident, caring, accomplished young women of integrity and purpose who seek to make a positive contribution to society, both in Australia and overseas, and who carry a genuine concern for the welfare of others.
