House Sports Day

Our House System is an integral part of school life. The diversity of activities provides many opportunities for girls to participate whilst special events such as House Sports Day offer girls the opportunity to compete, have fun and forge strong friendships and lasting memories.

The Boarding Experience

Some things at school just can’t be taught; the lifelong friendships, the discoveries that excite and the moments that matter. At PLC, Boarding is more than just a place to live and walk to school. It’s a holistic experience that immerses students into a warm, inclusive home away from home. Hear our Boarders discuss why they chose to come to PLC and the opportunities that makes Boarding such a wonderfully social and enjoyable experience.


At PLC, girls can participate in a wide range of sports and engage in extensive competitive and non-competitive sports event, covering core curriculum and elective specialist pursuits. Watch our Rowing Squad as they have fun preparing for the Head of School Girls Rowing Regatta.
