A Senior School education at SCOTS PGC prepares students for life beyond school in whatever pathway they may choose to pursue. Students are given the opportunities to learn, face challenges and develop resilience in a safe and supportive environment.
The SCOTS PGC College Senior School precinct is located at the Oxenham Street Campus and provides a quality education for students in Years 8 to 12. Small to medium class sizes enable students to develop effective relationships with their teachers and sensitive pastoral care and counselling is offered.
Students can choose from a wide range of subjects and benefit from subject specialists. Outstanding learning facilities with fully integrated IT resourcing is standard. The College operates both a BYOD and provided netbook programme allowing for flexibility and individual choice.
All pathways are considered as students in have the option of following either an academic or vocational stream in Years 11 and 12. They are also given excellent career counselling and QCS test preparation.
Our OP results reflect the strong academic values of the College. The majority of students from our academic stream pursue a tertiary education in a diverse range of areas including Law, Medicine, Engineering, Education, Veterinary Science, Agriculture and Nursing.
Equally celebrated are the results of our Vocational Education and Training Students. These opportunities are open to all with a number of OP-eligible students also able to obtain VET qualifications. More than a third of senior students choose to work exclusively within our Vocational Education and Training (VET) stream, with these students able to complete School-based Apprenticeships or Traineeships. Students can also qualify for two or more Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) certificates in fields ranging from Furnishing, Engineering, Business, Hospitality, Agriculture, Horse Breeding, Shearing, Children’s Services and Aged Care. Recent graduates from SCOTS PGC College have gone on to a variety of careers and pursuits, with many continuing further academic study before entering the workforce.
Senior School students attend daily, co-educational, tutorial groups that focus upon the individual as well as promoting sound inter-year relationships. As a co-educational school, our boys and girls work together whenever possible, fostering healthy social relationships in a school environment in which everyone has the opportunity to be recognised and valued.
