Scots College Vision

Our Vision

To deliver a future focussed education where students thrive and realise their all-round potential.

Founding Statement

Scots College was established by the Presbyterian Church and remains affiliated to the Church. In his proposition to create the College in 1916, Dr Gibb wrote;

“The aim of the College is to build up strong Christian character on a broad religious basis and to train for useful and loyal citizenship and service, and to these ends first and foremost the courses of study and subsidiary institutions of the school will be directed. The guiding principle in framing the course of study will be the claims of the individual boy whose special needs will receive careful attention. Classes will be kept small to secure this particular care.”

Mission Statement

To educate by delivering a personalised, holistic education, that allows our students to flourish now and in the future as global citizens who are collaborative, think creatively, reason critically and communicate effectively as they Learn. For Life.
