Strathallan Prep

Where a warm welcome and lots of new friends await ...

Welcome to Strathallan Prep School, the newly created Junior School from Strathallan. Previously Riley House, Strathallan Prep now welcomes almost 100 day and boarding pupils.

Discretely set within Strathallan’s 153 acres of safe, rural campus, with its own classrooms, social areas and outdoor space, Strathallan Prep is a small, close community that also benefits from access to the extensive facilities of the whole School. With pupils joining us from the local community and from all over the world, we take our responsibility as a fun, supportive home-from-home very seriously.

Small classes, big resources

Strathallan Prep pupils enjoy the expertise of dedicated primary school teachers and the specialist input of subject teachers from the senior school, all whilst benefiting from small teacher to pupil ratios of between 12-14 per class.

All of this helps to give Strathallan Prep School’s pupils an exceptional educational experience. Specialist teaching provides a deep insight into each subject, while the scale and quality of the activities programme provided allows every pupil – day or boarding – to broaden their skills and experience and discover new things they’ll love.

Where children can be children

While the scale of our activities programme is a huge benefit to our junior pupils, we never forget that children need time to create their own games and adventures, learning as they play.

From kicking a ball around with friends to den building in the woods, our safe, secure 153 acre campus is a wonderful playground that children adore.

“In Riley, there is a commitment to helping pupils discover what inspires them. No pupil is forced to participate in activities they are not interested in. We suggest activities and they try things until they find programmes that they enjoy and wish to pursue.”

Riley House at Strathallan Prep

Riley House is our home-from-home for both day and boarding pupils, and we work hard to promote a caring environment where we all look out for each other and ensure everyone knows who to ask for help. As a result, our pupils are confident, eager to try new things, polite and well mannered. We listen to them and ensure that they’re happy and well looked after every day.

In Riley, we focus on creating a safe and stimulating environment where children can learn, have fun and enjoy spending their time. Both boarding and day pupils can use our indoor facilities including the main common room, TV lounge, games room, quiet areas and snug.

Pastoral care & support

Ensuring the mental health and wellbeing of children is a huge responsibility and something we take very seriously at Strathallan. Happy, well-adjusted pupils do better in their academic studies and are more able to take on the challenges life presents.
