Headmaster's Welcome

Headmaster's Welcome

I am delighted to offer you a warm welcome to Strathallan, and I am personally thrilled to be part of the School at this exciting time in its development.

The all-round, inclusive education on offer at Strathallan has always been a core component of Strathallan's ethos, and is focused on bringing out the very best in every pupil. I am looking forward to developing this still further over the coming years. 

We have high expectations at Strathallan and this encourages our pupils to believe in themselves, to be inquisitive, to be resilient and to show ambition both in and out of the classroom. Our pupils feel happy and valued, which gives them the confidence, enthusiasm and social awareness for life-long learning needed to succeed in a fast changing world.

Respect for tradition and an openness to innovation are valued and we encourage our pupils to work with, and learn from each other, whilst also showing courage to stand up for what they believe. I am confident that we can challenge and develop all those who come to us at whatever age, stretching the most able whilst supporting those who need a helping hand.

Our aim is to send our pupils out into the world with strong friendships already forged and the ability to make new ones, with the knowledge and skills to succeed at university and beyond, and with a broad range of interests to enrich their lives. 

I hope that you will find our website helpful and that it will give you a sense of the values that our school stands for, as well as offering a glimpse of the great beauty and scale of our campus and buildings. It is, however, only a website and is no substitute for a visit. 

We do hope you will come and see for yourself what Strathallan does each and every day, and find out what it could do for your child too.
