Academic Performance

HSC 2017 Results

“A Scots education brings the students into contact with the brightest researchers, practical achievers and creative dreamers, and trains them in the type of critical thinking that leads to significant advances in knowledge and understanding."
Dr Ian PM Lambert, Principal

The College’s continued focus on sports and academic achievement across the board has seen us excel in a number of areas. 

2017 was an impressive year for Scots boys with great achievements across the board, particularly considering the smaller cohort to the year prior. This included over 15 percent of boys who achieved an ATAR greater than 95.00. Overall, six Scots boys were selected on the Premier's All-round Achievers list, just one short from the class of 2016.

NAPLAN Results

The Scots College significantly supplements NAPLAN data with ALLWELL data collected in alternate years to NAPLAN testing and with Morrisby data collected in Year 10. This comprehensive analysis of student ability and progress supports teacher planning and provision for creating learning experiences that effectively meet each boy at their point of need.

Numeracy, writing and language conventions will continue to be an area of focus for our teaching staff.
