“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.

“The boys of 2018 set their individual goals high and collaborated wonderfully to ensure that all students were given the opportunity to succeed.”
Mr James Bowles, Year 12 Coordinator

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.
