The History

Scotch Oakburn College was created in 1979 with the amalgamation of Oakburn College (formerly Methodist Ladies’ College) and Scotch College.

The amalgamation successful brought together two fine traditions that stretch back to 1886 and 1901 respectively. The founders of both schools saw education not only in terms of academic qualifications, but in the development of character, trained against the background of the Christian faith. 

Scotch Oakburn has a long and significant connection with the history of Launceston and the wider Tasmanian community. It has been educating Northern Tasmanians and, indeed, students from further afield, for over 120 years.

Scotch Oakburn believes that its long history is one to be proud of and instils in each student a sense of community and school spirit. (More...)
