Head PhotoGlenalmond College is one of Scotland's leading boarding and day schools educating children between the ages of 12 and 18. A true 24/7 boarding school, Glenalmond is as busy at the weekends as during the week. Glenalmond boasts a 300 acre campus set in the stunning countryside of Perthshire in Scotland, just one hour from Edinburgh or Glasgow airports. Our rural location creates an inspiring environment for learning where boys and girls can thrive and achieve their full potential. Academic results are strong with a choice of 25 subjects at A level, while superb pastoral care is provided through boarding houses which are also accessible to day pupils. An English style school in Scotland, we provide a huge range of opportunities outside the classroom, in sport, drama, singing, debating or climbing mountains. Leadership skills are high on our agenda. We have one of the strongest completion records for Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards in the independent sector and are one of the top officer-producing schools in Scotland. Parents are welcome to contact the Registrar to arrange a visit to Glenalmond, to experience the friendly community and the commitment to learning that make Glenalmond stand out.
