About Us | Scots College

About Us

As an IB World School, Scots offers a vibrant learning environment, encouraging excellence in every facet of each child’s education. At Scots we create global citizens – who are equipped for life as balanced, compassionate, motivated and socially aware young people.

The Scots motto of ‘Virtutem Paret Doctrina’, translates as ‘Let Education Make All-Round Character’ and emphasises our commitment to a holistic education and the development of well-rounded character.

We strive to instil in each of our students a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which students can achieve their academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others. By providing our students with an array of opportunities inside and outside the classroom, we encourage them to not only explore and recognise the diversity of their talents and abilities but to develop essential leadership skills.

Scots College has a proud 100 year history of education. From 2020 Scots College moved to co-education initially in Years 11-13 then across the full College from 2021. 

All students are provided with an environment that is dedicated to meeting their specific needs. We are fortunate at the College to have excellent and dedicated staff who work hard to support and encourage their students. The College is characterised by small class sizes, tutor groups, personalised pastoral care, a future focussed curriculum and academic support. The school family is strong and works closely with parents to obtain the best outcomes for their child. We believe we enrol the family, not just the student, and work closely in partnership to obtain the best possible outcomes.

At Scots College we strive to help your child to be the best they can be. The knowledge they gain, the values they adopt and the friends they make during their school years will play an important role in shaping their future.
