Students at Scots are provided with an abundance of playing fields (grass, all weather and indoor) that accommodate a variety of sporting activities on site. Our participation in the local Primary Schools Sports Association (PSSA) and affiliation with the Border Independent Primary Schools Association (BIPSA) provides a range of opportunities for our students to compete with schools and sporting clubs from across the region in football, netball, soccer, athletics, cross-country and swimming.

Representative sport is available for talented students in various sporting pursuits through the Riverina Associated Schools (RAS) and the NSW Combined Independent Schools (CIS).  Scots students have performed at elite levels in Australian Rules football, soccer, swimming, athletics, cross-country and triathlon.

At Scots, sporting involvement is available as part of the PSSA program and within district competitions.
