Scots College Senior School

School Life

Senior School life

Scots College is a leader among secondary schools for the quality of its extra-curricular programme. All students are encouraged to play sport for the College, and with many codes to choose from, most find a sport they enjoy. In addition, the College offers students the chance to participate in debating, chess, musical groups, drama groups among others. Students are encouraged to try new activities, learn new skills and develop as teams and individuals.

A wide range of subjects is available to Senior School students including French and Japanese, art and music, graphics and technology, as well as core curriculum subjects.

All courses lead to national qualifications and tertiary education.  We offer a dual pathway of NCEA and IB (International Baccalaureate) at the senior level, and the boys have responded well to the challenges of these qualification requirements.  For example, in 2010, 92% of Scots boys achieved NCEA Level 1, 88% achieved Level 2 and 95% achieved Level 3.  These are well above the average for all NZ boys.  Our first cohort of IB students will complete their assessments in 2011.

In addition to the usual range of classroom and laboratory facilities there is a specialist arts centre, graphics suite and music centre. The Scots College Information Centre comprises the Library and the Computer Labs.  As well we provide a Careers Centre, Common rooms for senior boys and a tiered Lecture Theatre. There is also a gymnasium and the Hodge Sports Centre.
