Scotch College is much more than a school - it is a luminous educational establishment. It grew from the fervent wishes of nineteenth century Adelaide Presbyterians, through its humble beginnings in Unley, to its current splendour at Torrens Park. "Ninety Years at Torrens Park: The Scotch College Story' provides a comprehensive account of that journey from a boys' college of about 100 students to a coeducational institution of almos 1000.

Heroic figures such as Norman Gratton, the first headmaster, to agents of radical change such as Philip Roff, the headmaster who introduced coeducational to Scotch, emerge from the archives to stand beside the other headmasters, proincipals, chairmen of the Scotch College council of governors, teachers and students who populate the cotch College story.

There is something here for old collegians of every decade, for parent and current students and for everybody with an interest in things historical and educational.
