About Scots

Raising fine men since 1893

The Scots College is a distinctive Australian school that defends the honourable traditions, adventures and learning of boys. We exist to inspire boys to learn, lead and serve as they strive for excellence together. Scots has been raising fine young men since 1893 from Sydney, New South Wales and many different nations from around the world.

We are committed to developing a culture of high expectations that nourishes the development of creative, confident, accomplished young men. As one of the top private boys' schools in Sydney, we acknowledge the importance of student engagement, of challenge and active learning opportunities. Learning experiences are increasingly personalised - shaped in response to our boys' stages of development rather than their age or year level.

Our boys are encouraged to develop a 'growth mindset' understanding the diverse and dynamic nature of intelligence. They all need security, support, confidence in themselves and belief in the power of their own commitment to their learning. Information communication and video conferencing technologies are used to enhance collaboration and the authenticity of learning experiences, provide flexibility, extending learning opportunities and supporting targeted learning interventions.

Strong and positive values are important to our College. We aim to build a culture of respect in our community towards God, others, self and our environment by aligning our policies and practices with Christian principles.
