Glenalmond Pupils Complete Officer Training Course

Two former Glenalmond College pupils have recently passed out at Sandhurst, having completed an eight-week officer training course, after being selected for a much-sought after Gap Year Commission.


Ben Humphries and Gregor Cochrane, who both left Glenalmond thissummer, were selected, while they were still at school, from around 500 applicants.

The Glenalmond pair were among only ten to be selected for the Commissions, following a rigorous selection process. They are now doing a further short course before joining their respective regiments this month.

Ben is joining the Lifeguards in the Household Cavalry, where he hopes to eventually join the mounted division in Knightsbridge, and Gregor is joining the Scots Guards.

“Congratulations to Gregor and Ben from staff and pupils at Glenalmond,” said Hugh Ouston, Head of Glenalmond.

“The pair have done incredibly well to be selected for the Gap Year Commission and we are all delighted to hear of their continued success, following their education at Glenalmond. Our best wishes go to both Gregor and Ben as they prepare to join their regiments this month.”
