Extra-curricular Opportunities

Life at Glenalmond is not solely about acquiring qualifications, it is also (unashamedly) centred on fun, being excited by challenges and having the confidence to respond.

As well as a huge range of sports, our wonderful countryside setting allows us to offer an impressive programme of outdoor/adventure pursuits. Pupils can climb Scotland's famous Munros and kayak on lochs, all with expert tuition. International sporting tours and expeditions provide cultural experiences as well as physical and mental challenge.

We have one of the highest success rates in the UK for completion of Gold and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards, many of our pupils join the Combined Cadet Force and our pipe bands and there are music and drama productions to bring out our pupils' artistic talents.

Each year a group of Fifth Formers challenge themselves by planning and completing a 100 mile walk back to Glenalmond from various starting points and raise considerable sums for charity in the process.

We nurture many skills in our young adults - motivation, perseverance, adaptability, creativity and the ability to communicate: all qualities vital for a successful life.
