What says..

Music everywhere - bagpipe boxes all over the porch and hall when we visited, both girls and boys in pipe bands much in demand for charities and have entertained Princess Anne of late, played in the Angus show, the Glamis gathering, Hollyrood parliament etc. Pipes and drums played at the battlefields in Belgium and compete in the Royal Pipe Band competitions. Scottish country dancing no longer has parental input; marvellous photographs in the porch of a junior Scottish country dancing lesson – note the kilt loops and the ecstasy on the faces of the young...

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.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2009, Mr Richard Toley BA MPhil PGCE (40s) who joined Lathallan in 2006 as director of co-curriculum from nearby High School of Dundee. Educated at The Merchant Taylor’s School, Liverpool, followed by St David’s Lampeter MPhil at St Andrews and PGCE at Strathclyde. He and his wife live on site, with their young now in school.

Six years down the road (Toley was catapulted into headship after an 18 month apprenticeship) he is comfortably confident in his role. (We usually pop in for a quick check on our way down from Aberdeen, though alas this time we were both caught in traffic and had to do some crisis management, so missed our meet.) School moved from being 'just' a prep school with a hugely popular and often oversubscribed nursery...
