The Scots School Albury is an independent, K-12, Uniting Church, co-educational, day and boarding School, located in the suburb North Albury of Albury, New South Wales, Australia. It draws students from the local area and other parts of Australia.[1]

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.

Two single-sex boarding houses (Sellars House for boys' boarding and Wilson House for girls' boarding)[2] accommodate students from Years 7-12 on campus.

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.

For the 2015-2016 school year, the Principal is Peggy Mahy, the Deputy Principal is David Armstrong, and the head of the junior school was Greg Newbold.[3]

History[edit]

In 1866, the Albury Grammar School and was operated by Joseph Masters from 1878-1881. In 18881 Masters left Albury Grammar and opened a new school called Albury High School and later sold it to A. Smith and G. Wilson in 1886. In 1902 the school changed its name to Albury Grammar school. Later, Wilson moved the school to its present campus. In 1926 the Rosehill Girls' School opened. In 1939, the Rosehill Girls' School changed its name to the Woodstock Girls' School. Then in 1972, both schools decided to amalgamate to form the Scots School Albury.[4][5]
