Preparatory School

"The self-assured, responsible and friendly manner of our boys reflects the many and varied opportunities that are afforded to them. Being a distinctly comprehensive school with authentic Scottish educational traditions, their achievements are testimony to the programs which focus on the full development of the talents and needs of our boys."
Mr John Crerar, Head of The Preparatory School

At the Preparatory School, we focus on developing the boys' joy and passion for learning, self-confidence and an enduring value system through providing a range of enriching experiences that help boys grow and develop.

Students in the Preparatory School continue to strengthen their literacy and numeracy skills in addition to studying Human Society and its Environment, Science and Technology, Visual Arts, Library, Music, Indonesian (available from Year 5), Physical Education, Drama, Dance and Christian Studies.

At The Scots College, we are not confined solely to Academic excellence; the Co-Curricular Program at Preparatory School gives boys an opportunity to discover their talents. Students have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and participate in the strings program, choral groups and instrumental ensembles. Chess, Debating and Public Speaking are also among the many co-curricular activities in which we encourage the boys to become involved.

The College is dedicated to providing for the unique needs of the individual. Programs are developed to be not only age specific, but tailored to the developmental stage of each child. Find out more about the learning aspirations Scots has for your son.
