Scotch is committed to being a leader in teaching and learning

The aim of a Scotch education is not simply to get students across the line to a university place. Scotch offers a whole of life preparation. We believe our education is the cornerstone of a long and fulfilled life.

We believe that the skills and experiences we offer create the capacity for continuous adaptation in a complex world. We are preparing our students to be fully fledged professionals, citizens and parents. Our students’ wellbeing, and that of those they will serve and influence, is at the heart of everything we do.

All learning at Scotch is underpinned by the wellbeing of students and staff. Our vision for wellbeing is to develop engaged & connected learners who possess the knowledge, commitment and passion to enhance their own and others’ lives.

The key to successful learning is relationships. Our students regularly provide feedback to teachers and the students say the teachers are knowledgeable, treat them with respect and feel comfortable asking for individual help. Scotch students are educated to make a positive and purposeful impact during their lives. Our learners are flexible (adaptable), discerning, resilient and empowered. They understand purpose, their ability to contribute, know how to communicate effectively and are confident in their own voice. Our learners will participate in a curriculum that engages them.  It is informed by relevance, coherence and rigour appropriate to our local and global setting.

Our students work in a structured timetable across the eight learning areas: English, Mathematics, Science, The Arts, Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences, Technologies and Health and Physical Education.

2018 Curriculum Outlines


South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)

The SACE framework offers flexibility – the Plus One acceleration program offers our Senior School students opportunities to study other areas of interest, whether it be a subject at another year level, vocational courses or university courses. It all counts towards their SACE.

SACE is recognised internationally. Students have been accepted to Cambridge in the UK, Yale Singapore and to Colleges in the US for Tennis, Basketball, Swimming, Rowing and Soccer scholarships.

The majority of our students attend University and most go to Adelaide University with the most popular area for our students being the sciences.
