What Will You Learn At Scott College?

Our brand new building, equipment and facilities will support a high-quality curriculum which will enable students to meet the needs of the highest demand qualifications at Key Stages 4 and 5.

Year 9 Options Information

Students will have direct access to mentors from Plymouth University and one-to-one support through our Personal Coaching framework.

We will encourage our students to think creatively and will deliver our curriculum in a range of different ways, using project-based learning and explicitly educating our students in leadership and communications skills using PiXL Edge.

Our learning projects ensure every student is grounded in a wide range of skills, including key employability and life skills.
Students will have more choice about following a curriculum that is not limited by the Ebacc performance measure.
