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