Boarding at Scots College is a very rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Students boarding at the College gain a number of important life skills. They develop greater independence and maturity. Their organisational skills expand. They learn to manage their time, and importantly learn to live with others and support one another. Many of the friendships developed at the Scots Boarding School last for life.
Scots College offers five and seven day boarding in Gibb House. Seven day boarders have two exeat weekends each term. Homestays are arranged through the College for those students unable to travel home. Weekly boarders depart on Friday afternoon (or Saturday after sport) returning on Sunday evening or early Monday morning.
Seven and five day boarders are cared for by the resident Housemaster, Assistant Housemaster, Matron and tutors. All the staff live on campus. A close-knit family atmosphere is fostered in this extended family environment.
The Boarding House at Scots College offers its students a well-supported learning environment, while also giving them the opportunity to establish life-long friendships.
We look forward to providing your child with an exceptional boarding experience.
Students’ emotional and physical wellbeing is cared for through a range of pastoral-care systems and services. They have nutritious meals, good living conditions and support for learning. Students are encouraged to take part in a variety of recreational activities, including sporting fixtures. Those boarding full time are able to go on outings and spend time in their friends’ homes. Regular contact with family members is encouraged and facilitated.
Whilst the College continues to transition in the move to co-education boarding is only available to girls in Years 11-13. Boys boarding is available from Year 7 to 13.
