School Life

The education we provide at Glenalmond extends far beyond the classroom, and our young people grow in all aspects of their lives.  We strive to instill timeless qualities in our pupils, while preparing them for life in modern society.

The boarding houses are at the heart of school life for both day and boarding pupils, and excellent pastoral care underpins all that we do. Chapel provides the spiritual focus for our pupils, while their physical wellbeing is aided by our on-site medical centre and our healthy eating programme.  As many of our pupils are boarders, the social life of the school is important, and the weekends are generally as busy as weekdays!
