The SCOTS PGC College in Warwick has been a co-educational boarding school on Queensland’s Southern Downs since 1917. Since that time thousands of students from around Australia and overseas have boarded at SCOTS PGC whilst they study at school, play sport and actively take part in the College community. Boarders have developed friendships for life and prepared themselves for the world beyond school, by learning new life skills.
SCOTS PGC presently offers positions for 200 boarders from Year 6 through to Year 12. Today, the College continues its boarding tradition with the operation of two separate boarding campuses. The Locke Street campus is the home of SCOTS PGC girl boarders and is a renovated heritage-listed Queenslander style building overlooking beautiful gardens. It is a short five-minute bus-ride from the main College campus.
SCOTS PGC boys board at the Oxenham Street campus at the rear of the College with a peaceful outlook over the Condamine River and nearby farmlands. A new architecturally designed senior boys boarding house adjacent to the sports hall opened in 2015. All SCOTS PGC boarders have modern rooms and facilities available to them.
Attending a boarding school is a big decision for any family, but it is more than just choosing a school. At SCOTS PGC, we understand that you are entrusting your child into our care and guidance, and therefore a number of other factors will determine your decision.
Students, and families alike, are attracted to SCOTS PGC because of the unique attributes the College offers – including: small class sizes; personal care and attention from teachers; excellent curriculum and activities; genuine safety and security; healthy meals, and the country values that all at SCOTS PGC live up to. SCOTS PGC boarders do not feel segregated and are part of our one school for all approach.
Boarding options at SCOTS PGC include:
- Full Time Boarding – where students spend the entire term at SCOTS PGC and may return home during school holidays.
- Weekly Boarding – where students board at SCOTS PGC Monday to Friday and return home on weekends.
- Overnight Boarding – where students can stay overnight at the College if their parents are away.
Each boarding campus at SCOTS PGC is managed by residential supervisors and also has a Boarding Captain. Although we are a co-educational school, our boarding campuses are separate for boys and girls. The students get plenty of time for socialisation under supervision but we are also very mindful of having strict guidelines and policies in place at all times for the health and safety of all students.
