At Scots, “We seek to cultivate a body of graduates who are well-rounded, successful men of faith and independent mind who influence their nation for the greater good and who strive to be worthy of their forefathers.” The Strategic Intent of The Scots College 2016-2025

Boarding offers an opportunity to educate like no other. It provides community and camaraderie, a sense of belonging and, more than anything, the gift of time.

Scots has a long, revered boarding history, but we are also looking to the future; ways to improve and innovate – and evolve – the boarding experience. And, while we are educators and not futurists, we believe that the boarding program at Scots must educate and prepare our young men for a demanding world that is constantly changing and increasingly complex. So, we design it with that goal firmly in mind.

Though academic success is absolutely necessary, Boarding at Scots is about much more than just grades. We want strong academic results to be accompanied by breadth and depth of achievement in sporting, arts and cultural pursuits as well.

Through our tailored programs and student experiences – in addition to careful nurturing from our outstanding staff – Scots boarders are happy students that enjoy challenging themselves, respect individuality, and genuinely value their community.

Whether they are guided by a tutor in the evening, training in the gym in the morning, practising at the band hut in the afternoon or fishing on the harbour with their close mates on a weekend, Scots boarders have time. Time to excel, relax, reflect and build lifelong friendships, passions and interests.

This is the Scots Advantage.

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.
