The Scots School Albury places our young people at the centre of their educational experience by providing challenges and opportunities that enable them to flourish as individuals, with others, and within the broader community. Our foundation as a traditional, yet modern place of education ensures our students gain from our experience and history through innovative pedagogy inspired by best practice.
Scots staff and student are inspired to be leaders within the global community as - Authentic, Compassionate, Courageous, Resourceful, Inclusive, Curious and Resourceful Individuals.
