Director of Boarding Welcome

The Scots School Albury has a proud Boarding tradition dating back more than 100 New 1
years and holds the mantle of being the best performing regional co-educational Boarding School in NSW.

Boarding at Scots provides a wonderfully caring, safe and supportive community which welcomes and embraces all students. Boarders are immersed with an aspirational peer group and an environment in which to they can develop socially, spiritually and academically, all while retaining strong ties to their community back home.

At Scots we seek to create a positive Boarding experience for young people by:

  • Ensuring that all Boarders have a strong sense of belonging;
  • Ensuring that the interests and passions of Boarders are encouraged and catered for through a wide range of co-curricular, extra-curricular and weekend activities; and
  • Ensuring Boarders reach their full academic potential through the provision of tailored learning programs, learning support/extension programs and age-appropriate wellbeing programs.

Scots is home to about 60 Boarders who live amongst 11 hectares of beautifully manicured gardens and outdoor grounds. Our Boarders are comfortably accommodated in fully supervised Boarding Houses and have access to state of the art sporting, music and learning facilities.

The Scots Boarding experience is active and fulfilling, with age-appropriate routines that are designed to help your child flourish. We are steadfast in the belief that the Scots Boarding experience equips young people with the required skills and knowledge for them to become World Ready citizens.

Along with all the Boarding House staff, I look forward to welcoming you to The Scots School Albury and sharing with you how Boarding can complement and enhance your child’s educational experience.
