Welcome from the Warden

With its magnificent buildings and grounds, set in the breath-taking countryside of Perthshire, Glenalmond has been described as the most beautiful school in Scotland.

I passionately believe that we enjoy the best of both worlds – the security of a rural setting, with unrivalled outdoor activities, combined with easy access to two of Britain’s greatest cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow. I cannot conceive of a more wonderful place to study, to live and to grow.

Why did we choose Glenalmond? Watching friends' children who went to the school develop into confident, kind, happy adults. Current parent

Our stunning location is matched by the education we provide. Glenalmond is a busy seven day-a-week community, built on an ethos of full boarding, and the children are at the heart of everything we do. Our mission is to provide every boy and girl with the finest all-round education possible – an education which prepares them for the future, through inspirational teaching, outstanding extra-curricular opportunities, and the very best in pastoral care.

Glenalmond is set for a cracking future. Good Schools Guide

My aspiration is that every pupil at Glenalmond realises his or her full potential, whether that be in the classroom, on the sports field or in activities such as art, music and drama. I want them to enjoy a fulfilling and successful time at school, and in doing so develop the humility and confidence required to live significant lives when they leave.

I hope you enjoy reading our website and that it inspires you to come for a visit –  we look forward to meeting you and your children, and I promise you a very warm welcome!
