Welcome to Junior School

In our Junior School, we believe it is crucial to know and understand each child. Our small campus allows us to develop strong personal relationships with all students and to work in partnership with parents. We want our students to be eager to come to school each morning, to be engaged and challenged throughout each day, and to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities on offer.  Our Junior School is a place where our students develop a love of learning and make lifelong memories.

Safe and caring environment
Our Junior School is a safe, caring and supportive community that allows each child to feel a sense of connection and belonging. We are a small school with class sizes that allow for individual support and attention. Our school is a place where your child will be known.

World-class, international education
Scots Junior School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP is a contemporary approach to education that is delivered in schools in Australia and around the world. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. This programme ensures that our students are receiving an education that prepares them for success in a rapidly changing global environment.

Engaged and independent learners
Dedicated teachers create opportunities for students to wonder, to question and to make connections; and also provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to investigate their own wonderings, to find out, to analyse, to synthesise and to take meaningful action. Our students become independent learners who are engaged in purposeful and meaningful learning. Students are constantly challenged, extended and enriched with significant learning.

Outstanding academic results
Whilst this is not our focus, we do achieve exceptional results on national and state benchmark tests such as NAPLAN, reflecting the quality of our programs. We do this by providing an inspiring, dynamic environment in which students are closely supported to achieve their personal best. Our students are reflective, knowledgeable thinkers who develop skills through academically rigorous programs and go on to achieve excellent results at the tertiary level.

Amazing opportunities
Our Junior School provides opportunities for students to engage in a wide range of experiences. These experiences make Scots the special school that it is, and allows our students to find interests and passions that will shape who they are as human beings. Our students have the opportunity to dance, to play music, to express themselves creatively, to learn another language, to grow vegetables and to create culinary masterpieces, to compete athletically and to perform on stage. Our Students are taken out of their comfort zones and supported with the skills and attitudes to flourish.

I am extremely proud to lead the Junior School and look forward to sharing every aspect of your child’s Scots journey with you.

 

Mr Nick Martin
Head of Junior School
