For students to thrive they need to become expert learners. They need to acquire a body of knowledge, skills, attributes and values that enable them to adapt and contribute in an ever-changing environment.

The skills, or capabilities for learning, include the basics of literacy, numeracy and the use of information and communication technology. More than this, they also encompass broader social skills of communication, collaboration and ethical behaviour and the ability to perform in an intercultural environment.

Today, the College is excited to launch a seven-part video series that outlines how Scotch Oakburn […]

In an extraordinary year that placed great demands on leaders, our Year 12 students have fulfilled their role of student leadership with great compassion, courage and integrity.

Throughout the year they bore the torch of school spirit, engaging across the full spectrum of College life, engaging in service and representing the College in the wider community, all of which epitomised the character of the cohort.

The Year Group have maintained a spirit of friendly rivalry in […]
