Scotch Oakburn College is a coeducational, open entry, day and boarding school in Launceston, Tasmania, providing exceptional opportunities for its students from Early Learning through to Year 12.

A Uniting Church school founded in 1886, Scotch Oakburn has built a reputation as one of Australia’s finest schools.

The College also has strong national and international connections as a member of the prestigious Round Square organisation. Scotch Oakburn has a sister school relationship with one of China’s leading schools, Beijing’s Jingshan School, and is Tasmania’s only member of the Confucius Classroom program.

The TCE results achieved continue to be exceptional, with our students among the country’s academic elite each year.

However, the offerings of the College, both curricular and co-curricular, are broad, designed to provide a holistic education for all, covering the social, emotional, physical and spiritual learning as well as the academic.

Our teaching staff are a highly committed group of professionals – part of our community of lifelong learners. A focus of their on-going learning is that of gaining a greater understanding of how young people learn today.

The College has exceptional facilities developed by a strong understanding of how people best learn. The architecture of the Middle School, Helix (Centre for Science and Mathematics), Robert Dean Senior Student Centre and the conneXions learning centre at the Junior School have earned wide acclaim. Facilities have been designed around 21st Century learning best practice, which enhances the connection between student and teacher.

Scotch Oakburn, with its proud traditions built over 130 years, remains committed to investing in the future of the College and its students.

The College has three campuses: the Elphin Campus, comprising Early Learning to Year 5 and the College Boarding House; the Penquite Campus, comprising our Middle School (Year 6 to 8) and our Senior School (Year 9 to 12), as well as our business office; and the Valley Campus in the Fingal Valley, home of our Education outdoors and Environment Centre.

We are a registered charity, registered by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

Visitors are most welcome to the College at any time and we look forward to showing you around.
