Day Pupils

Day pupils play a full part in the life of Glenalmond - the only difference is that they go home at night!

Why choose Glenalmond for a day pupil? Outstanding pastoral care, more care and attention to the individual and super facilities. Current parent

Day pupils take a full part in all that Glenalmond has to offer, from the excellent academic education to sport, music, drama and extra-curricular activities. Day pupils are welcomed to Glenalmond and benefit from the seven days a week programme of teaching and activity that have been developed as part of our provision as a leading boarding school.

A boarding school can offer something very special to its day pupils, unmatched by day schools.  The longer school day at Glenalmond provides day pupils with the time and space for academic study along with an unrivalled breadth and depth of extra-curricular options, including sport, art, music, drama, outdoor and leadership activities. 

This is so much more than is available at a traditional day school, where the school day is limited and generally only five days a week.

Each Glenalmond day pupil becomes a member of one of the boarding houses so they play a full part in school life. They can also stay for the night if they want to.

Free day pupil transport is offered from Perth, Crieff, Dunkeld, St Madoes and Auchterarder.

We are holding an Open Day specifically for day pupils on Saturday 18 March 2017.  This is the perfect opportunity to come along to Glenalmond, have a look round the school, meet the staff and talk to pupils about the benefits of a Glenalmond College day pupil education.
