Welcome to Scots College

Graeme Yule

Scots College is a Presbyterian day and boarding school comprised of three schools in one College; Junior School (Years 1-6), Middle School (Years 7-10) and Senior School (Years 11-13).


Proudly an IB World school with a history of over 100 years of education the College’s motto is “Virtutem Paret Doctrina” – let education build all-round character. Students at Scots College are provided with opportunities in many areas to develop their potential across academia, sport, culture, service and spirituality. We provide an individualised education where every student is known and their educational needs catered for with a team of passionate teaching staff who deliver a world class education.


A Scots education equips each student to thrive now and in their futures, to learn. For life. With a rapidly evolving world influenced by increased globalisation and technological advancements the College has a clear Future Focussed Learning Strategy to ensure each student at Scots College receives a high quality education, preparing them to successfully navigate the next steps of their education and futures in a continuously evolving world.


In August 2020 The Board resolved to introduce co-education across the full College. This will commence in 2021 with places being offered in the Junior School as well as in Years 7 and 9 in the Middle School. The move to a fully co-educational College is the exciting next step in this Future Focussed Learning Strategy. Read more.
