One of the highlights of the year at Glenalmond College is the Candlelit Service which is traditionally held at the end of term.
It is incredibly hard to put into words what makes our end of term Candlelit Service so special.

Thanks to all involved - what a way to end our term.

Amazing day to have virtually the whole school out together on the school golf course for the annual Glenlamond Steeplechase. The day showed that sport can bring everyone together, no matter how fast or slow you run, everyone was cheered the whole way round and through the finish line, whatever their position.
