Sport at Scots

Sport is synonymous with the Scots experience. The College leads the way in delivering a strong schoolboy sport program, providing boys with the opportunity to utilise state-of-the-art facilities and to be mentored by Olympic and World Championship level coaches. Boys are guided through the ‘Mind Body Heart Pathway’ program, which facilitates their holistic physical development. Sport at Scots teaches boys to discover their personal strengths through competition and camaraderie, and also encourages them to become all-rounders. High academic expectations are placed on all our athletes, and our tutorial support programs empower boys to achieve their true potential – both on the field and in the classroom.

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.
