Where friends become family
Welcome to our world
Girls have their own study bedroom from Third Form
With around two-thirds of our pupils spending all day, every day with us during term times, Strathallan’s a busy place at any time of the day. We welcome boarders from here in Scotland, the rest of the UK and, of course, from all over the world. No matter where they come from, they’re welcomed into a thriving and supportive community.
It’s easy to get to build a network of friends in the local area too – our day pupils are in the same school houses as our boarders and they’re all equally involved in school life.
Naturally, we also recognise that young people need their own space to grow and develop. Our Housemasters take a guiding role in overseeing the wellbeing of everyone in their House but all staff are involved in pastoral care. Our recent, excellent report from the Care Inspectorate is an endorsement of the high standards we set at Strathallan to make sure our children are well looked-after and happy when they’re in our care.
As well as academic studies, we provide a huge range of sports and activities every school day and, at weekends, there’s lots to do with sports, games, free time and a number of optional excursions.
