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.

New Day Pupil pricing, from September 2017

From September 2017, we are introducing a new day pupil pricing policy to make a day pupil education at Glenalmond College more affordable. 

The changes include a significant reduction in the Third Form fee, so that the Junior Day fee remains at the same level throughout Second and Third Form.  For 2016, this fee is £5,490 per term.

In addition, our Senior Day fee will be frozen at the 2016 level (£7,318 per term) for 2017.
