Little boys from the Early Learning Centre (Transition to Year 1) graduate and progress to the Junior Preparatory School in Years 2 to 4 where they are guided to see the link between academic and personal growth. During these formative years in Years 2 to 4, boys continue to strengthen their literacy and numeracy skills in addition to studying Human Society and its Environment, Science and Technology, Visual Arts, Music, Physical Education, Drama, Dance and Christian Studies.
Mastering their World
Progressing ever closer to the Senior School (Years 7 to 12), the Senior Preparatory years are a boy’s next learning journey in their personal quest for mastery. His world begins to expand and during these years, boys focus on fostering the virtues of compassion, truthfulness, stewardship and ‘servant leadership’ through Scots’ Leadership Program. These areas are cultivated through the many opportunities presented through curricular, co-curricular and sporting activities.
Preparatory School Honours Program
The Scots College Honours Program is designed to cultivate, test and defend student ideas and encourage reflection as a tool for improvement. This may include self-awareness on an individual level or a sense of responsibility within a wider social context.
The program provides notably differentiated course work in the core subject areas of English and Mathematics and thinking dispositions for boys in Kindergarten to Year 6. Our mission is to help identify and support the students in our community with exceptional academic potential.
