Scots Boys Grow Into Fine Men

The Senior School is where Scots boys grow into fine young men. As they thrive on their independence and increased confidence, they become brave of heart and bold of mind ready to learn, lead and serve in the community.

Through our Academic, Co-Curricular Activities, Sport and Outdoor Education (Glengarry) program, Scots boys are provided with experiences of adventure to extend themselves and continue their quest for excellence.

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.

Curriculum at The Scots College

The Scots College offers the NESA mandated curriculum. In Years 7 and 8, students are provided with a choice of languages to study — Chinese, French, Indonesian and Latin.

All Year 9 students participate in a residential Outdoor Education Program for two terms at our Glengarry campus in Kangaroo Valley. Glengarry is renowned for providing generations of defining moments for boys as they grow into men.

In Years 9 and 10, students choose, in addition to the NESA core curriculum, two elective subjects from a wide range of subject offerings. This is a time for boys to explore their areas of interest in preparation for making an informed decision of their pattern of study for Years 11 and 12.

Pathways to Tertiary Education

A comprehensive Careers Education Program is 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, Scots’ students can choose from a range of HSC subject options designed to meet their specific needs and interests. The College also offers an alternative HSC pathway called the Applied Entrepreneurship Program and NESA Endorsed Vocational Courses such as Construction plus access to VET courses at TAFE.

Mr Alan Elder was born in Scotland and migrated to Australia with his parents at a young age. He attended The Scots College for all his schooling, graduating in 1944. He played 1st XI Cricket and was a member of the College Cadet Unit. After leaving school Mr Elder studied accountancy and retained a life-long love of the College, especially the Pipes and Drums. Mr Elder never married, however the significant bequest he left will allow his Scots family to remember him through the Lang Walker Business Centre.
