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.
