What the Good Schools Guide says...

Spectacular self-contained quad with cloisters, centred on the chapel (with its surprising spiral staircase) set in immaculate 300 acre estate surrounded by some of the smartest grouse shooting in Scotland.

What the school says...

Glenalmond College is an independent boarding and day school set in 300 acres of spectacular countryside just outside Perth, yet within easy reach of Edinburgh and Glasgow airports. It makes the most of its rural Scottish location with its pupils living and learning free from the distractions of city life. Glenalmond offers an all-encompassing education that allows each child to fulfil his/her potential and enter adulthood with confidence. There is a strong emphasis on academic success with the school following the English system of GCSEs and A Levels. The support basis for pupils is extensive, with an innovative programme to nurture the academically gifted through cross-age discussion groups and lectures. There is also a growing Learning Support Department. Regular recognition is gained by the schools chemists, mathematicians, musicians, singers and sportsmen and women, who compete at national level.

Leadership skills are also a focus and over the past five years Glenalmond has sent more cadets for officer training at Sandhurst than any other school in Scotland. The Warden Gordon Woods sums it up perfectly when he says: 'Glenalmond challenges the parts that other schools do not reach.'
