The Scots School Albury is an independent, K-12, Uniting Church, co-educational, day and boarding School, located in Albury, New South Wales, Australia. It draws students from the local area and other parts of Australia.

The Scots School Albury has a history reaching back to the establishment in 1866 of Albury Grammar School, the first independent boys school in the Albury area. The School was formed in 1972 with the merger of Albury Grammar School with Woodstock Presbyterian Girls School, assuming the new identity of The Scots School Albury.

The Scots School Albury is a Uniting Church, Independent Co-educational Day and Boarding school that encompasses students from their Pre-School years right through to Year 12 on the one campus. The two single sex boarding houses accommodate students from Years 7-12 on site.

Its 2012 enrolment includes approximately 500 Secondary School students and 175 Junior School students. Located a short distance from the centre of Albury, The Scots School Albury features a blend of modern and older buildings set in 11ha of extensive grounds.

Sporting facilities include two full sized all-weather playing surfaces for hockey, tennis and netball; a swimming pool, two full size sporting ovals and a purpose-built Indoor Sports Centre (opened at the end of December 2010).

The Alistair Todd Chapel Hall provides substantial facilities for the staging of dramatical and musical productions at the school whilst the John Edwards Theatre (a purpose-built theatrette) accommodates smaller drama productions and lectures and the Cultural Centre provides an alternative focus for the teaching of music and languages.

The Information and Technology Centre houses the library and computer laboratories, whilst the Warren Howlett Science Centre accommodates a variety of science laboratory facilities.
