PLC Armidale ... equipping girls for lives of significance since 1887
PLC Armidale celebrates 136 years in 2023.
The College combines years of tradition with innovative teaching to offer a dynamic all-girls’ education that is tailored to the specific needs of girls for both day and boarding students from Pre-Kinder to Year 12 (boarding from Year 5).
A stunning garden and parkland at PLC Armidale provide a tranquil environment that is welcoming and conducive to the culture of learning that exists at the college.
The size of one of the oldest educational institutions in Armidale has been intentionally designed to allow bespoke learning plans, and the college has a highly respected, enviable reputation for academic excellence, providing a broad curriculum and extensive nurturing pastoral care program. In addition to its academic excellence, PLC Armidale is renowned for its musical prowess, sporting success, leadership and community service involvement. As places are limited to support a phenomenal average student-to-teacher ratio of 6 to 1, priority is given to current PLC Armidale Junior School students when Senior School capacity is reviewed each year.
PLC Armidale frequently features in the top 200 schools for HSC achievements. Approximately 95 per cent of PLC Armidale graduates progress to study university courses, and around one-third of those elect to pursue Science related subjects.
PLC Armidale students also excel beyond the classroom in many extracurricular activities, including cattle team and equestrian pursuits, as well as sports and the arts. The fastest growing activity at PLC Armidale currently is the hugely popular and internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh program.
An intense focus on literacy forms the foundation for academic success, underpinned by supportive and respectful relationships between teachers and students. Girls blossom in the nurturing environment. Our College motto is ad astra (to the stars), and we work in partnership with every student and her family to achieve her personal best at PLC Armidale.
In 2017, the College commenced a program called PLC Pathways, which is a 12-month intensive English (ELICOS) and cultural familiarisation residential program for secondary school aged girls. PLC Pathways operates alongside the regular College program and is a unique and welcome addition to an already culturally diverse, inclusive and globally connected PLC Armidale. PLC Pathways also includes opportunities for boys ... but on the Scots All Saints' College campus in Bathurst!
