Scotch Oakburn College was created in 1979 with the amalgamation of Oakburn College, formerly Methodist Ladies´ College (1886), and Scotch College (1901).
The successful amalgamation brought together two fine traditions that stretch back to the 19th century. The founders of both schools saw education not only in terms of academic qualifications, but in the development of character, trained against the background of the Christian faith.
Scotch Oakburn has a long and significant connection with the history of Launceston and the wider Tasmanian community. It has been educating Tasmanians, and students from interstate and overseas, for over 125 years.
Scotch Oakburn is proud its long history and the sense of community and school spirit instilled in each student
