Senior School

Our vision focuses on developing students into successful men and women and preparing them for an ever-changing world

The Senior Schools’ dedicated campus has been designed to cater for your child’s needs during their senior years of school in Years 7 – 12. Located on over 100 acres of stunning grounds, the campus is a safe and secure environment where students have the space to learn and grow.

Scots All Saints College encourages students to become original thinkers through unique learning opportunities in a nurturing environment. Academic excellence is also a hallmark of our collaborative approach to learning and a positive outcome of the strong relationships formed between teachers and students. The College is proudly ranked as the top performing school in the Central West region of NSW, in HSC and NAPLAN results across all year groups.

We believe that learning comes from doing; each student can follow their chosen pathway to a fulfilling education and co-curricular success. Our wide range of elective subject choices enables students to develop patterns of study, best suited to their interests, abilities and future needs. We encourage your child to embrace learning that develops creative and critical thinking skills beyond the standard curriculum, in areas such as problem solving, collaboration, verbal communication and interpersonal dispositions/skills/emotional intelligence.

Our highly qualified and professional staff are committed to the wellbeing of every student to develop them into lifelong learners. By embracing the Christian values that have guided the College since its foundation, students are inspired to thrive and excel. The opportunities at Scots All Saints College are extensive and we encourage every student to embrace all that is on offer.
