About Scotch

Scotch College

Scotch College is one of Australia's leading schools for boys. The School has been at the forefront of education since its foundation in 1897.

Throughout its long history, the School has upheld a tradition of excellence that is reflected in a wide and progressive curriculum.

Scotch is a member of the Uniting Church, which was inaugurated in Australia in 1977 and was formed by the union of the Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian churches. Christian values and ethics encompass all our teaching practices. The figure of Christ serves as an example of personal commitment, encouraging a Christian perspective of the world's needs and cares.

At Scotch College, learning is more than an academic pursuit; it is a total picture which provides a balance between a student's intellectual, physical, emotional, relational and spiritual needs.Scotch's tradition of individuality, excellence, and community is a trademark of our students; it is the cornerstone on which our School was built and the heritage for its future.

In keeping with the School's goal to provide education of an international standard, the School adopted the International Baccalaureate to its curriculum in 2003. Scotch College is authorised to offer both the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and the IB Diploma to provide a seamless curriculum of an international standard of excellence in the formative years.

The School has approximately 200 Junior School boys from Kindergarten to Year 5, 500 Middle School boys in Years 6 to 8 plus 800 boys in the Senior School from Years 9 to 12, including 170 boarders.
