Admissions

We are delighted that you are considering enrolling your son at Scotch College. It is our sincere hope that your decision will be the beginning of a long and happy relationship.

After visiting our website, many parents are keen to find out more about Scotch by attending one of the numerous School Tours on offer. These tours allow time for you to experience our school in action and get a sense of what it would be like to become part of the Scotch community.  Should you like to join us for a tour of our College, please take a minute to arrange a tour which suits your needs.

As a follow on, many families choose for their sons to spend a 'life in a day' at Scotch. I look forward to making these arrangements for your son.  A meeting with the Headmaster or Head of School can be made before making a final decision. We know that choosing a school is the single most important decision parents or guardians will make. We want to ensure you feel supported in the whole decision-making process. Please phone to schedule an appointment.

If you would like to reserve a place for your son, please complete the online registration form and forward this along with the non-refundable registration fee of $150. (Please note that this registration fee is already part of an Old Scotch Collegians membership and as such this fee is waived for any OSCs).

A non-refundable endowment fee is required for all enrolments at the time of accepting an offer of a place. A life membership subscription to our Old Scotch Collegians is transferred from this amount when your son commences his years at Scotch.

If you have any questions about enrolling your son at Scotch or would like a prospectus sent to you, please contact me on +61 8 9383 6809 or email admissions@scotch.wa.edu.au or complete the attached online form.

I look forward to meeting with you soon and being able to provide you with further information and personal support.

Di Moran
Registrar
