Thank you for your interest in Scotch College.

Special Notice: Placement Tests (2 May) Postponed Indefinitely

Please note that the Placement Tests, scheduled 2 May for boys applying to enter Scotch in 2022, have been postponed due to the corona virus pandemic.

Offers for places in 2022 will go ahead as planned. It is, however, essential that parents who wish their sons to remain in contention for 2022 must confirm their continued interest by returning the form, Senior School Bookings: 2022. This form was posted to all applicants during the second week in March.

Offers will NOT be made unless this form has been received at the Admissions Office by the due date.


Since 1851 Scotch College has provided challenging and coordinated programmes of the highest standard for generations of boys. We look forward to showing you all Scotch has to offer and the value we place on making each boy's time with us a happy, rich and rewarding one.

The main entry levels for day students are Prep and Year 4 in the Junior School and Year 7 in the Senior School. Boys may be enrolled at other year levels where vacancies arise. Boarders enter in Years 7-11.

Parents are advised to apply as early as possible as initial offers of places for Prep, Year 4 and Year 7 are mainly determined by the age of the boy on receipt of the initial application.
