As one of New Zealand’s leading private schools, Scots College been helping young men from Years 1-13 prepare for their place in the world for over 100 years and from 2020 will welcome girls into Years 11 and 12.

The diversity of cultures, faiths and experiences at the College enriches our learning environment. This benefits all students and is an important part of the Scots experience. We create global citizens – who are equipped for life as balanced, compassionate, motivated and socially aware individuals.

We understand that a successful transition to an internationally recognised university is the ultimate aim for many students. Small class sizes, dedicated teachers, outstanding facilities and individualised attention helps us to prepare students for a smooth pathway to tertiary education either in New Zealand or abroad. Our dual curriculum ensures students have a wide range of academic pathways.

We also understand that academic achievement is only one part of the picture.

We strive to instil in each of our students a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which each student can achieve their academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others.

At Scots College we offer a full range of support services for our International Students, providing a safe and happy learning environment. Our international services include an orientation programme, English language support (ESOL), accommodation support, and an extensive co-curricular programme. We provide access to first language support for all International Students.

Scots College belongs to The Wellington Private Education Network (WPEN) consisting of three of Wellington’s leading independent schools: Scots, Chilton St James School and Samuel Marsden Collegiate. Students enroled in a WPEN school are provided with the highest educational experience including the StudyCare programme. This unique first-class care programme is designed to provide students from all three schools assistance as they settle into life in New Zealand and opportunities to experience New Zealand culture, supervised activities with fellow StudyCare students, student support and tertiary pathways.

Scots College is making changes to its Senior School to better prepare students for their futures. The College constantly evaluates its offering to ensure we give students the skills they need to succeed in life. As part of this evaluation the College is: welcoming girls to the Senior School from 2020, reviewing the Year 11 curriculum to reduce the amount of assessment and focus more on skills essential for a students future, and undertaking campus improvements and developments. If you would like to know more about these changes please visit the future focussed learning section of our website.

I invite you to contact us to discuss how we can help your child achieve their educational potential and career ambitions.
