Scots College is a leader among secondary schools for the quality of its extra-curricular programme. 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, musical groups, 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 Senior School students including French and Japanese, art and music, graphics and technology, as well as core curriculum subjects.
All courses lead to national qualifications and tertiary education. We offer a dual pathway of NCEA and IB (International Baccalaureate) at the senior level, and students have responded well to the challenges of these qualification requirements. For example, in 2016, 97% of Scots boys achieved NCEA Level 1, 96% achieved Level 2 and 97% achieved Level 3 and university entrance. These are well above the average for all NZ boys. Results for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme are also above the Asia Pacific average with 90% of students achieving the diploma in 2016.
In addition to the usual range of classroom and laboratory facilities there is a specialist arts centre, graphics suite and music centre. The Scots College Information Centre comprises the Library and the Computer Labs. Students have access to specialist training facilities such as The Hodge Sports Centre, a tiered lecture theatre and a tertiary style flexible learning space that offers areas for teaching, individual study and a common room for senior students.
The College has a strong Future Pathways programme (Careers programme) that holds careers forums, provides mentoring and work experience options and access for students to online career tools.
