Strathallan Shooting Academy

Strathallan Shooting Academy

Raise your sights at Strathallan

Clay target shooting is one of Scotland’s fastest-growing sports and here at Strathallan, we have a proud shooting tradition going back many years. We are also the only school in Scotland to have its own purpose-built Compact Sporting clay pigeon shooting facility boasting nine fully automated radio-controlled traps.

Several of our alumni have gone on to represent Scotland at the World Championships and amongst our current pupils we have some of the best young shots in the country representing both Scotland and the school at the World Championships last summer, including a current Colts World Champion; Ali T.

Over the past twelve years, we have been consistently placed in the top four at the British Schools’ Championships as well as pre-COVID-19 winning the Scottish Schools’ Clay Pigeon Championships 13 times in the last 15 years. And since its inception three years ago, we have won the renowned Holland & Holland British Independent Schools Competition once and been runners-up twice.


Without the opportunities the Shooting Academy provided me, I would not have had the ability or confidence to compete at both a national and international level after leaving Strathallan.
