Glenalmond Minibus Driver Congratulated for 20 Years of Service

A Glenalmond College minibus driver has this week stepped down from behind the wheel, after two decades of transporting pupils to and from the leading Perthshire independent school. Willie Simpson, who is also a well-known local farmer and breeder of prize-winning Highland ponies, is retiring from his driving duties. However, he still intends to keep playing at events, including Glenalmond ceilidhs, with his renowned Scottish country dance band. Glenalmond College has a fleet of liveried vehicles which provide a free transport service for families with children attending the school. The routes covered by Willie and his fellow drivers range from as far afield as Aberfeldy, Auchterarder, Rait, Bridge of Earn, Dunning and Crieff. New bus routes to meet local demand, including Burrelton and Glenfarg, are planned for next year.


Mobile Ban is Delivering Major Benefits to Glenalmond Pupils

A ban on mobile phones, and other devices, introduced by Glenalmond College just over a year ago, is delivering a raft of major benefits. Pupils at the leading independent school in Perthshire, have benefitted from increased social interaction and improved ability to focus on school work, during their first year in a phone-free learning environment. These benefits are underpinned by the findings of a new Education Scotland report on Glenalmond, published this month following a visit by HMI inspectors to the school in November. The outstandingly positive report highlights the good manners and courteous behaviour of pupils and their clearly-articulated pride in their school, as well as their exceptional academic performance.


Glenalmond College Announces Council Update

Glenalmond College has announced that Niall Booker will continue for a second, three-year term as Chairman of its Governing Council. Two new members of the Council have also been announced, with the appointment of David Fox-Pitt MBE and Christopher Reynolds.


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 this summer, 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.


Candlelit Service is Glenalmond Highlight

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. These photographs, taken at Chapel this evening, go some way to conveying the ethereal atmosphere which makes this service one of the standout events in our school calendar for pupils, parents and staff. Thanks to all involved - what a way to end our term.
