Strath is for life
Being a Strathallian
As most Strathallians will tell you, a strong connection with the School remains long after they’ve moved on into adult life. The close friendships formed in the classroom, in our Houses and on the field of play, often last a lifetime. Crucially, Strathallians of different generations are there for each other and are always happy to share their experience and support.
Strathallians carry the School’s values with them wherever they go and we’re delighted that so many keep in regular touch. You can maintain your links with Strathallan right here – and play an active part in School life for many years to come.
Strathallan School History Book
We have commissioned an external publishing company (Third Millennium Publishing – an imprint of Profile Books) to produce a coffee table style book which recounts the history of the School. This will be ready in time for early summer 2020 and as such will be part of the centenary celebrations of the School moving to Forgandenny. The company have produced a number of such books for schools that include Brighton College, Felsted, Gordonstoun and so on.
As well as recounting the history under the tenure of various Headmasters, the plan is to also include some personal stories and recollections and of course lots of photographs.
If you have any photographs that you think might be of interest too, then please photograph or scan them and send them to the School Archivist, David Amdurer, who will collate them. He will then get back to you if a proper copy is required.
John Macleod, author and journalist has been commissioned to write the narrative and is happy to be contacted by any Strathallian if you feel you have something to contribute. John’s contact details are below – please feel free to pass them on to any Strathallians who you think would be interested. John’s timescale is tight – he will be researching January to March and writing April to June so please do get in touch in good time.

Clubs and Societies
We’re always keen to expand the number of clubs and societies for Strathallians. If you’re interested in getting a group off the ground please contact Aileen Wilson at email@example.com and we’ll help in any way we can.

Formed in 2011, Strathallians come together regularly from all over the UK to practise and perform.
As a key element of the Strathallan Centenary Celebrations, the Strathallian Pipe Band performed on both Strathallian Day and at the Centenary Ball. They have since joined with the School Pipe Band to perform on subsequent Strathallian days.
If you would like to become involved with the Band as either a piper or drummer, please contact email@example.com.
