Headmaster's Welcome


Selecting a school for your son has implications, as the years spent at school will influence the rest of his life.

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.

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.

A Scotch education is an evolving process which stimulates the unique qualities and aptitudes of individual students. It provides a depth of curriculum and activities which recognize that no two boys are alike. The School's diverse academic, sports, and creative programmes encourage each boy to explore a variety of options. Through these the boys discover innate abilities, learn teamwork, exercise initiative and, ultimately, find a productive place within the School community. These programmes also prepare boys for life beyond school, either within Australia or internationally.

The Uniting Church, of which Scotch College is a part, describes itself in its Basis of Union "as a pilgrim people, always on the road to a promised goal". Scotch College sees itself as part of that journey. As young men grow, mature and develop in all aspects of their lives, Scotch College provides a community of people with which to travel, and room for boys to explore their own gifts.

We invite you and your son to join us as we share together the excitement of the journey.
