History

With a history spanning almost 100 years, The SCOTS PGC College is testament to parents wanting to give their children the best education possible.

An amalgamation of two fine schools, the SCOTS part of our school was originally The Scots College, a boys boarding and day school that commenced in Warwick in 1918. One year earlier, in 1917, the Presbyterian Girls’ College (PGC) opened its doors as a boarding and day school with 53 pupils.

Local families, the DeConlay’s and Shilliday’s were seen as the founding fathers of the PGC as they wished for their daughters to have a Presbyterian education and didn’t want to send them to Toowoomba. Warwick was chosen as the suitable southern downs location to build a new school that would cater not just for Warwick parents or Presbyterians.

“Glenbrae”, an established home on over five acres in Locke Street, Warwick was purchased in 1917. Over the next eighteen months a brother school, The SCOTS College, was established with the acquisition of another home ‘Arranmore’ on the opposite side of the city on the banks of the Condamine River.
