The Senior School
"You never actually leave Scots; it's like being a part of a family, a club and a culture all at the same time. I've always known that you never really leave Scots when you finish Year 12, there's always this connection with other Scots boys, whether it be Old Boys or current, you share this sense of character"
Lachlan Weir, Head Prefect 2010
The Senior School is where
Scots boys grow into fine young men.
Through our Sport, International, Academic, Outdoor Education (Glengarry) and an extensive Co-curricular program, Scots boys are provided with experiences of adventure and excellence to extend themselves beyond their wildest dreams.
Scots' Teaching staff, Tutor Groups and Pastoral Care program collectively support boys to achieve their broader academic goals and continually develop as an individual, discovering their inner resources.
Our evidence, research-based curriculum, based on the mandatory curriculum from the Board of Studies and specifically designed for boys, utilises the latest technology to engage students in enriching experiences.
You can read more about the Senior School in the 2012 Senior School Handbook.
The Scots College offers the Board of Studies mandated curriculum across Years 7 and 8 with a choice of languages available. French is presented as a European language, Indonesian as an Asian language and Latin is made available to students with aptitude for languages.
All Year 9 students participate in a residential outdoor education program for a semester at our Glengarry campus in Kangaroo Valley. Glengarry is renowned for providing generations of defining moments for boys as they grow into men. Learn more about Glengarry.
In Years 9 and 10, students pursue their chosen courses (selected in Year 9) and in addition they are presented with English, History and Geography. A comprehensive Careers Education Program is also introduced in Year 10 to support the boys in selecting an appropriate direction for their senior years at The Scots College.
In Years 11 and 12, students are able to choose from a range of courses designed to meet their specific needs and interests. The College also offers Board of Studies Endorsed Vocational Courses such as Construction as well as access to VET courses at TAFE.
We encourage the boys to expand their horizons and we can provide them with specialist courses at tertiary education institutions, including Distinction Courses.
