Creating All-Round Character
Scots College has a proud history stretching back over 100 years of education. Our core purpose is the development of all-round character. Students at the College are provided with opportunities in many areas to develop their potential across academia, sport, culture, service and spirituality.
We are proud of the young individuals we develop during their time at the College. The IB Learner profile outlines some of the learner characteristics and this coupled with the College’s leadership programme and spiritual heritage indicates our purpose in the development of citizenship. In short the students of Scots are expected to give of their best in all they do, have sound values and put something back into their communities.
The College focuses on the development of the individual and has structures where students are known and supported in achieving their goals. Success is celebrated and encouraged. Expectations are high and students excel in a wide variety of areas.
As an independent Presbyterian Years 1 – 13 day and boarding school which offers both NCEA and International Baccalaureate, Scots is unique. Independent education values the individual and values choice. The International Baccalaureate qualification shows our commitment to the creation of global citizens.
Scots recognises the impact on education in a world where technology continues to disrupt our workforce, fundamentally changing the skills students will need after College. Our focus is to equip students with the skills they need to thrive now and in their futures. To continue to provide a future focussed educational environment the College is making changes to the Senior School. From 2019 the Year 11 curriculum will focus less on assessment and more on learning skills essential for a students future and from 2020 we will welcome girls to the Senior School.
Students at Scots are supported by many excellent facilities and a dedicated staff. Our teachers provide students with a nurturing and caring environment where each student’s needs are catered for. Our campus offers students with specialist sports facilities, well equipped science, technology, music and arts resources and flexible learning environments. Over the next five years the campus is growing with the introduction of more classrooms, STEM resources and flexible learning areas.
We are proudly an internationally minded school. Based in the nation’s capital we have access to many amenities and opportunities that are not available elsewhere which enrich student experiences. We are a diverse College which welcomes students from around the globe. Such international students also enrich our learning environment.
At Scots each student can achieve their potential. We look forward to working with you and your child to achieve this.
