Scots College is a world-class independent Presbyterian day and boarding school for boys Years 1 - 10 and co-education in Years 11-13.

The College is comprised of three schools; Preparatory (Years 1-6), Middle (Years 7-10) and Senior (Years 11-13) and is an authorized IB World School. The Scots motto of 'Virtutem Paret Doctrina', translates as 'Let education build all round character' and emphasises the schools' commitment to an holistic education and the development of well-rounded students with substance. The College prides itself on consistently high academic achievements and for preparing students for success at a tertiary level and later in life. Scots will offer your child the best quality opportunities where achievement can be optimised in a nurturing and caring environment, where they are encouraged to strive to be successful.

In 2019 Scots College was ranked in the five best schools in New Zealand for getting in to top Universities. This independent ranking by QS World University Rankings and Crimson Education was calculated based on academic performance, extracurricular opportunities and equal access. It is reflective of our holistic approach in preparing students for competitive universities and career pathways.

A key focus at Scots College is to ensure students are well prepared for their life after school. As well as providing the necessary knowledge to prepare our students for their futures we need to focus on the soft skills they will require to be successful such as emotional intelligence, social intelligence and cultural intelligence. Transferable skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, character and citizenship all play a significant role in our curriculum design.

    Scots College - Creating the All-Round Man since 1916

Scots College is situated in Strathmore, one of Wellington's Eastern suburbs. A short 10 minute drive to the central city and two minutes to the airport. The College occupies a sizeable area of land, with significant outdoor space, allowing students to participate in many activities outside the classroom. 

The College offers exceptional facilities with modern well resourced classrooms. Students have access to specialist classrooms for music, art, technologies and to our world class indoor sports facility, The Hodge.

The onsite 130 bed boarding house provides a home away for home for many international students on the beautiful two hectare College grounds. Students may also opt to live with one of our carefully selected full-time homestay families. Take a virtual tour of our Boarding House here
