Scotch College Adelaide is an independent, co-educational day and
boarding school offering an outstanding education from
Early Learning to Year 12
There are six Houses, vertically grouped from Year 7 to 9 and Years 10 to 12. These are separated into intimate mentor groups of about 20 led by a teacher mentor.
There are five mentor groups in each of the six Houses, three in the Senior School and two in the Middle School.
The Head of House keeps abreast of each student’s academic, emotional, physical, social and spiritual wellbeing. The Head of House, with the assistance of the Mentors, maintains close communication with the students' teachers.
The valuable teacher-student-parent partnership is fostered by the close communications encouraged by Scotch.
For students, the House provides:
Mentor groups, and class sizes are deliberately small. This enables Scotch to monitor each child’s progress closely. At Scotch a student's personal best, wellbeing and belonging are all paramount.
Mentors and Heads of House are committed to making sure students achieve their personal best and receive the individual care and attention so important to developing into responsible people of good character.
Scotch College holds an Athletics Carnival, Swimming Carnival and a Cross Country Run each year where Houses vie for the coveted silverware and the honour of winning the day. Inter-House sports provide students with the opportunity to compete against each other in a spirit of camaraderie. There are also House cultural events such as the 'Big Sing'.
At various times throughout each year, Houses hold functions for their respective communities where students, their families and staff get to know each other in informal settings, and to develop and maintain true and long-lasting friendships.
In the Junior School and ELC there are four Houses;
Students belong to a House throughout their years in the ELC and Junior School. House competitions are held in swimming, athletics, cross country and chess.
