Transitioning to BIG School

As a Scots Rose Bay family, we are honoured to be your education partners in guiding your son’s schooling journey and watch his growth so far.

By now you may be wondering, where to next? What ‘big’ school in your neighbourhood is best suited for your son?

As a family of Scots Rose Bay, your son is eligible to transition to The Scots College Early Learning Centre (ELC), Bellevue Hill. To help you with your move up the ‘hill’, we have prepared an information pack that will help answer some immediate questions and provide an overview of Scots’ ELC.

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.
