Welcome to The Scots School Albury

Open invitation from Principal, Ms Peggy Mahy

Open Days 2014 - Friday 24 October 9.30am - 3.30pm;
Saturday 25 October 9.00am-12.00pm


I have pleasure inviting your family to The Scots School Albury Open Days on Friday 24 October from
9.30am–3.30pm and Saturday 25 October from 9.00am–12.00pm.

This is a great opportunity to hear about the School's priorities and future direction as a leading independent education provider.  As Principal, I will outline my vision for a new education philosophy and direction for the School under the banner of 'Life, Learning, Leading'.

The Head of Junior School Mr Greg Newbold will speak about the exciting new
International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), what it involves and how it will benefit our youngest students with flow-on benefits of inquiry-based learning through the Senior School.

A feature of Open Day will be presentations from the School's new Deputy Principal Mr David Armstrong and Coordinator of the Primary Years Programme Mr Nick Martin.  Both Mr Armstrong and Mr Martin will talk about their education backgrounds and philosophies, and how these will strengthen what we offer at Scots.

We welcome you to explore our outstanding facilities and speak with our staff and students who are proud to discuss the benefits of our pastoral care, curricular and co-curricular, cultural, sporting and boarding programs.

The Open Days will involve student-led tours, academic staff presentations, scholarship information, demonstrations and music performances.

All parts of the Pre-School, Boarding House, Junior and Senior Schools will be open for tours.  A program of tours and presentations can be downloaded by clicking here.

Our popular 'Student-for-a-Day' program welcomes interested students from Years 1 to 10 into our classrooms, offering them a personal experience of life at Scots. While bookings are essential, we strongly encourage you to take up this opportunity for your son or daughter.

I look forward to welcoming you to The Scots School Albury Open Day.


About Scots

We are a Uniting Church, independent school based in the regional centre of Albury-Wodonga, which straddles the border of Victoria and NSW. Our motto Fide et Literis reflects our values (faith and learning).

We offer co-educational schooling from Preschool to Junior School, right through to Year 12, all on the one campus.

Boarding is available for Years 7–12 in a range of flexible options – casual (one or two nights a week), weekly, or full-time.


We have the biggest range of subjects of any school in the region, plus an extensive range of co-curricular activities from agriculture to outdoor education. We pride ourselves on strong performing arts, music and sport.

The Scots School Albury is preparing to become a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) from 2015 for students aged 3–12. This is a curriculum framework that focuses on developing the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.

With almost 150 years of history, Scots is entrenched in the region as a leading school. We remain connected with our past students and have well-established links with the local and regional community.

We look after each child to nurture their learning and their development.

At the end of each day, we want your child to go home happy.
