We're always looking for talented individuals to join the Strathallan team.

This year, Strathallan launches our triple-pathway curriculum offering Sixth Form pupils a unique tailored curriculum. We are upgrading our SQA Higher provision from 17 Highers over two years to 24 Highers over one year with the option of Advanced Highers in the Upper Sixth. This will sit alongside our existing provision for A-Levels. As a result of this expansion, we are now recruiting for a number of new positions to help deliver the new curriculum from September 2020.
