Admissions Policy

To find out more information about Glenalmond College and our admissions policy, please contact us to request a prospectus or to arrange a visit.

The Glenalmond College admissions policy designed to make the process of applying to send your child here clear and straightforward. The process usually begins with the request for a prospectus and DVD, and is then followed with a visit to the school and then, if you want to make a formal application, the completion of a registration form.

Visiting Glenalmond

We welcome visitors throughout the academic year. A visit to Glenalmond allows you and your child to actually experience what the school is all about. Visits are relaxed and involve both meeting with the Warden (the head of the school) and pupils. For more information click on Visiting the School on the left.

Taster Days

We host a Taster Day each September during which prospective pupils and their parents are invited to take part in lessons and extra-curricular activities. These days are fun-filled and can involve anything from making mini-rockets in the technology department, taking an English or foreign language lesson, trying out our outdoor climbing wall, taking a dip in our swimming pool, or having a go at lacrosse. It's not just the children who enjoy these days - many parents have enjoyed 'going back to school' as well!

Registering your child

If you then wish to register for entry to Glenalmond College you need to complete a registration form and send it to the Registrar. There is a small registration charge of £50 (non-refundable) which is paid at the point of registration. This is not a guarantee of a place, as all places offered are subject to the pupil meeting the minimum reference and academic entry requirements. Once registered we will keep you informed about entry exams and any other updates regarding the admissions procedure.

Choosing a House

We always try to accommodate parental wishes expressed about the Houses they would like to see and following a visit, your son's or daughter's name will be placed on the list for any one preferred House. When that list reaches capacity, names will be added to another House list and also put on a waiting list for that of first choice. A transfer will be made if a space becomes available.
