Info for parents

A concern for parents, and even the students themselves, is whether the boarding environment will enable effective capacity for study. Boarding actually provides the opportunity for students to develop disciplined and structured study habits. Boarders certainly aren’t at a disadvantage academically.

Supervised study time occurs after dinner, between 6.30pm to 8.30pm, with boarders in Years 11 and 12 able to continue studying after this time (and other Years with permission).

Various Heads of Faculty staff visit the boarding houses on week nights to provide tuition to boarders. Boarders also have access to the College’s academic facilities during study times e.g. the library and computer laboratory. All facilities are supervised. Students who require additional private tuition can utilise the services of registered teachers.

One of the most important aspects to ensuring a boarding student remains happy and focused is for parents to maintain strong communication lines with their children and the College. Parents are encouraged to phone and email their children regularly. All children are given a SCOTS PGC email address and have their own netbook laptops to access emails at given times. There is also a communal phone the children can use to phone their parents on.

Regular communication with parents is also maintained through:

  • Academic reports
  • Parent/teacher interviews

Regular publications including:

  • The Lion & Thistle – the College’s magazine
  • Tatran – the College’s Yearbook
  • Parent social events
  • A weekly College newsletter as well as a weekly boarding newsletter specifically for boarding parents is emailed to all boarding parents each Friday.

We also encourage contact between parents and staff as and when required.
