Principal and CEO
Haileybury (Keysborough, Vic)
Derek Scott leads Australia’s largest school with the bold vision to be recognised as a great world school. This year, under his leadership, the school received a record 10 Premier’s VCE Awards, the highest of any school in Victoria. Scott has been driving and managing the two biggest projects in Australian primary and secondary education today: establishing the first Sino-Australian school – the Haileybury International School, Tianjin – and opening Melbourne’s first vertical school, dubbed ‘Haileybury City’. This innovative schooling approach is not only creating a new model of education but providing Melbourne families with education opportunities that were previously unavailable.
