Our scholarship programme is designed to celebrate talent and promote achievement at every level of the School.

Each year, we offer a number of scholarship places to exceptionally talented individuals. Successful candidates are awarded a discount on fees – usually between 10 and 20%. However, the main purpose of a Strathallan Scholarship is to nurture talent and promote achievement.

Scholars have access to a range of opportunities, like extra support to develop skills in their area of focus. In return, they are expected to contribute to and enhance our academic, musical, sporting and arts programmes, supporting and encouraging their peers to do the same.

Scholarships are awarded in open competition to individuals who demonstrate a very high level of achievement and potential in the following categories:

Third Form & Sixth Form Scholarships

  • Academic
  • Sport
  • Art
  • Music
  • Piping
  • Design Technology
  • Performing Arts

Riley (Junior) Awards

  • Academic
  • Music
  • Sport

Academic Scholars are expected to achieve top grades in all their exams and gain entry to the most competitive universities.

Successful scholarship candidates in sport, music and performing arts will normally have achieved at least representative honours and be performing at a standard beyond that expected of a normal school team or group.

In addition, total commitment, an exemplary attitude and high levels of achievement will be expected throughout their school career.


Scholarship applications are assessed in a number of ways depending on the area of focus and the age of candidates.
