What is an education worth having?

“We believe that a great education involves building the resilience, capacity, happiness and potential of your child, within a dynamic, innovative and engaging learning environment.

Wellbeing is at the forefront of our thinking. Most parents want their children to learn well – to be happy and confident, resilient and respectful – to feel engaged and cared for in everything they do.

At the same time, parents want their children to learn with purpose – to reach their full potential as independent, inquisitive learners, to learn how to learn and think, as well as achieve their personal and academic goals.

Parents want their children to be taught by great teachers – teachers who inspire imagination and passion for learning, who use the very best teaching methods, structures and tools, and remain totally committed to best practice and improvement and the values of their school.

At Scots we bring together these three areas to create a great educational journey and outcome for your child.

We also take a ‘high challenge’ approach to education. This means providing our students with the knowledge and skills, which help them to manage and thrive when faced with challenges and opportunities outside their comfort zones. It means encouraging students to work with their strengths, weaknesses and passions in real-world contexts.

Scots also emphasises the importance of equipping students with the personal and interpersonal skills that benefit themselves and their communities. We empower our students to make a positive impact on others and their world.

Through our educational model of Life, Learning and Leading, we develop World Ready citizens.

When you walk through our school or talk to members of our community, you will find many fine examples of our educational philosophies and practices in action, which we believe is an education worth having.”
