Mission Statement

To provide our students with an excellent and holistic education that allows them to contribute as global citizens who think creatively, reason critically, communicate effectively and develop the necessary skills to Learn. For life.


Scots College was established by the Presbyterian Church and remains affiliated to the Church. Its purpose is to give each young man a life long commitment to learning and to provide the environment in which he can achieve his academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential for the greater good and in service to others.


We believe Scots College should:

  • welcome applications from students of all faiths and none, value ethnic diversity, and recognise a wide range of interests, talents and abilities;
  • enjoy strong relationships with its communities and with the Presbytery of Wellington;
  • Create learners who strive to be
    • Inquirers
    • Knowledgeable
    • Thinkers
    • Communicators
    • Principled
    • Open-minded
    • Caring
    • Risk-takers
    • Balanced
    • Reflective

Future Focussed Learning

A key focus at Scots is to ensure students are well prepared for their life after school. That as well as providing the necessary knowledge to prepare our students for their futures we need to focus on the soft skills they will require to be successful such as emotional intelligence, social intelligence and cultural intelligence.

Core competencies for all students are: transferable skills including the 6Cs, digital preparedness and well-being strategies to assist students to be resilient.

Strategic Statement 2015-2020

In May 2014 the Board adopted a new Strategic Statement with its vision for the College out to 2020. This process saw the Board considering challenges and opportunities as we celebrate the College’s Centenary in 2016 and prepare for the next 100 years.

As part of this process the Board reaffirmed the College’s Vision, Mission and Purpose and created 3 key goals which retain its commitment to an excellent holistic education for young men, recognize our place in an increasingly globalized world and ensure the sustainability of the College into its second century. The Strategic Statement provides a high level overview of the College’s direction and this is to be further developed in the College’s Business Plan.
