ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE ...INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION...DIVERSE OPPORTUNITIES
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT- 1 December 2016
It was announced this week that The Scots School has decided to reduce tuition fees from 2017 by an average of 30%. Headmaster, David Gates, has informed parents and staff that this decision has been made following extensive consideration over a significant period of time. The school is strategically positioning itself in the educational landscape of the Central West. The fee restructure is possible due to many years of outstanding financial management and the fact that the school is free of debt.
“The fee restructure positions the school to continue to provide a quality education at a level more affordable to a greater range of families living in Bathurst and regional centres across the Central West. The School will continue to offer the range of learning and co-curricular opportunities that make us unique,” Mr Gates said.
In recent years the School has embarked on a program of building new facilities, including a solar-heated indoor pool and a performing arts centre. As part of the commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the school in Bathurst, a new pavilion was opened in March 2016 to accommodate additional learning space, educational conferences, and sports functions. All of these facilities are free of debt and the school is looking at further developments in the years ahead.
“I am excited by the possibilities of future development that this fee restructure brings.” said Mr Gates.
The Enrolments and Promotions Officer, Mrs Lynda Ireland states “There are places available for 2017 and we welcome any families who would like to discuss enrolling for next year.”
