The Gratton Society

Partnering to build the future

The Gratton Society is made up of people who have made a gift to the School in their will. Members of the Gratton Society are listed on the Gratton Society Board in the Drawing Room of Torrens Park House and are presented with a special scarf or tie to commemorate their contribution.

When Scotch moved to Torrens Park in 1919, the daunting task of turning an elegant but run-down Victorian mansion into a first-class boys' college was a challenge met by Norman Gratton, founding Scotch College Headmaster. Under his energetic leadership classrooms and dormitories were created, army huts were converted to classrooms or workshops, the coach-house became a science block and the stables a gymnasium. Ovals and tennis courts were established.

By the time he retired in 1951, there were over 400 pupils. No more popular figure had ever trod the College grounds. It seemed fitting, therefore, to name the Scotch Bequest Society, established in the late 1980’s, after him. The Gratton Society recognizes people from the Scotch Community who have made a bequest to the College in their wills.

By leaving a bequest, not only do you carry on the legacy of Norman Gratton, but you also help transform the lives of future generations of Scotch students.
