Scots College Middle School takes pride in its focus on the development of all-round character within each of its students. It has a reputation for providing a consistently high quality extra-curricular programmes. 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, music and 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 Middle School students including French, Spanish and Chinese, art and music, graphics and technology including robotics and digital technologies, as well as core curriculum subjects.
All courses lead to national qualifications and tertiary education. In the Senior years we offer a unique Year 11 programme with a focus on developing future ready skills and a dual pathway of NCEA and IB (International Baccalaureate) in Years 12-13, and students have responded well to the challenges of these qualification requirements.
In addition to the usual range of classroom and laboratory facilities there is a specialist arts centre, technology spaces, graphics suite, drama suite and music centre. The College has numerous flexible learning environments suited for both individualised and collaborative group study and teaching. We provide a Careers Centre, Common Rooms for senior students and a tiered Lecture Theatre. There is also a gymnasium, a weights room, science laboratories, the Creative and Performing Arts Centre, and the Hodge indoor Sports Centre.
