About Us

Scots College is a world-class independent Presbyterian day and boarding school for boys Years 1 – 10 and from 2020 co-educational Years 11-13.

As an IB World School, Scots offers a vibrant learning environment, encouraging excellence in every facet of each child’s education. At Scots we create global citizens – who are equipped for life as balanced, compassionate, motivated and socially aware young people.

The Scots motto of 'Virtutem Paret Doctrina', translates as 'Let Education Make the All-Round Student' and emphasises our commitment to a holistic education and the development of well-rounded character.

We strive to instil in each of our students a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which students can achieve their academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others. By providing our students with an array of opportunities inside and outside the classroom, we encourage them to not only explore and recognise the diversity of their talents and abilities but to develop essential leadership skills.

Scots College has a proud 100 year history of educating young men. Today with our children destined for a workforce and future that is rapidly changing the Senior School is changing to co-education in Years 11 to 13 to provide all students with an education that equips them for their life after school.

All students are provided with an environment that is dedicated to meeting their specific needs. We are fortunate at the College to have excellent and dedicated staff who work hard to support and encourage their students. The College is characterised by small class sizes, tutor groups, personalised pastoral care, a future focussed curriculum and academic support. The school family is strong and works closely with parents to obtain the best outcomes for their child. We believe we enrol the family, not just the student, and work closely in partnership to obtain the best possible outcomes.

At Scots College we strive to help your child to be the best they can be. The knowledge they gain, the values they adopt and the friends they make during their school years will play an important role in shaping their future.
