Congratulations to our Music Department which has been recognised by the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) as a ‘Top 10 Most Outstanding Accredited School’ for 2022. This is now the third year, in a row, winning this accolade!

This national award recognises the diversity of the College entrants in music performance and theory examinations, including Diploma candidates, and their relative success in these examinations over a 12-month period.

Participation in external exams is an additional accredited pathway available to boys as a part of the suite of offerings in our Music Department. It is but one part of the well-rounded music education approach provided for boys at Scots. It is very encouraging to receive such an accolade as a testament to the effort not just in external exam preparations but across the department last year.

This award recognises the time and effort contributed by all Scots Music staff and boys – including our outstanding casual staff team of instrumental experts – coming out of the COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 and 2021. Special thanks to the Director of Keyboard, Ms Rebecca Cheng, who coordinates our external exam programs and provides excellent leadership in this area.

Congratulations to students, staff and all College executives whose support makes these successes possible.

The Scots College is a proud member of the following associations.

William Elder


Mr Alan Elder was born in Scotland and migrated to Australia with his parents at a young age. He attended The Scots College for all his schooling, graduating in 1944. He played 1st XI Cricket and was a member of the College Cadet Unit. After leaving school Mr Elder studied accountancy and retained a life-long love of the College, especially the Pipes and Drums. Mr Elder never married, however the significant bequest he left will allow his Scots family to remember him through the Lang Walker Business Centre.
