About Penrhos College
We believe girls are given the best opportunity to thrive in a single-sex environment, free from gender stereotypes and expectations. Learn more about the background and strategic direction of Penrhos College that make us one of the best private schools in Perth for girls.
Penrhos College is an all girls’ school, in the faith of the Uniting Church. We are committed to educating our students for respectful and responsible participation in an increasingly diverse and fast-evolving global community. Equally, we are committed to the promotion of justice and equity in learning, working and social environments that are affirming and inclusive, where each individual feels safe and valued.
Girls of all religious, cultural and gender identities are warmly welcomed here. Our community respects and honours diversity, including (but not limited to) age, ethnicity, family structure, identity, race, culture, physical ability and religion. As a girls’ school, we typically refer to our students as students, girls, ladies or young women; where a preference is expressed for the use of another name and / or pronoun (in communications to, with and about an individual student), this is respected and observed.
The Penrhos learning experience is designed to empower each girl to be true to herself, kind to others and bold in the pursuit of her dreams. We are proud that our College brings together people of diverse backgrounds in a vibrant community that supports each student on her individual journey; together, we strive for the highest and become the best we can be.
We warmly invite you to discover Penrhos, one of the best all-girls school in WA.
