What the school says...

High quality academic staff and unique environment are all contributors to fulfilling the claim that every child has the opportunity to develop to their own full potential. Being a non-selective school, we do not have entrance exams; we assess each child on merit.

Recently we saw pupils reaching national finals in a variety of fields such as drama, science and sports. We strongly believe that every child deserves to enjoy the success of their individual abilities in whatever field they lie on the sports field, in the classroom, in the arts, in personal achievement.

Lathallan School is a place in which challenge, industriousness and maximising individual potential is pivotal in our pupils' educational development. Every individual is made to feel an integral and special part of the school. Weekly and flexi boarding is available; the only school in the region to offer such a service.

To really experience Lathallan School, please come visit us. Feel a spark of excitement as the Castle becomes visible through the trees, see the North Sea sparkle from beyond our picturesque Walled Garden, and feel the friendly and dynamic atmosphere that makes Lathallan School so unique.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole
