As our boarding house is smaller than many other girls’ schools, the students and staff are a close-knit group and very supportive of each other. We are committed to providing all boarders with a positive and enriching experience. At PLC Sydney we aim to produce young women of integrity and purpose, who not only achieve outstanding academic results, but also are well-rounded, engaged and confident young women.
