From The Principal.
Welcome to our vibrant, grounded and caring Perth College community.
Here at Perth College, we will help your daughter be the best version of herself. Our girls work hard to push intellectual boundaries, learn to overcome obstacles, strive for personal bests, embrace abundant leadership positions, laugh and grow. They do all this with a sense of humility.
In a world obsessed with image, we nurture our girls to be gritty, not pretty. We encourage greater self-confidence, self-esteem and teach our girls to think independently and develop the attitude that being smart is a great thing to be.
Our school has a long tradition of educating girls, and was founded by women for women. We have a continued focus on academic excellence, underpinned by strong pastoral care and a varied range of specialist programmes across visual and performing arts, cultural activities and sport.
As an Anglican school, the tradition of Christian worship and education is important, with all students taking part in Chapel services and participating in the Beliefs and Values curriculum. We also empower our girls to make a difference by giving back to the community whenever possible.
I understand choosing a school is one of the most challenging and difficult decisions parents will make, as it really is an investment in your children’s future. At Perth College, our promise to you is that we have dedicated ourselves to creating an optimum environment for the specialist education of girls. As a mother of four girls myself, including two Perth College graduates, I know how important good relationships are in a school and how a girl’s education is based on a strong partnership between the school and the home.
I warmly welcome you to visit Perth College and explore the many opportunities available to your daughter. Our Tour and Information Sessions or our annual Open Day offer you a first-hand experience into what makes our school so special.
