Fos­ter­ing a life­long en­joy­ment of learn­ing

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS -

Set in 153 acres of mag­nif­i­cent ru­ral Perthshire, yet eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble from else­where in Scot­land, Strathal­lan School is an out­stand­ing place to learn with some of the finest fa­cil­i­ties of any school in Scot­land.

The school has a great blend of lo­cal, national and in­ter­na­tional pupils and cel­e­brates the different in­ter­ests and cul­tures our in­ter­na­tional pupils bring. Where learn­ing comes to life As well as achiev­ing ex­cep­tional aca­demic stan­dards, we fos­ter a life­long en­joy­ment of learn­ing.

Our highly com­mit­ted teach­ers are also in­volved in sports coach­ing and other ac­tiv­i­ties and the bonds built out­side the class­room have pro­found ed­u­ca­tional ben­e­fits.

It’s no sur­prise that many of our pupils move on to top uni­ver­si­ties like Ox­ford, Cam­bridge and Ed­in­burgh.

Where ev­ery­one’s in­volved in the life of the school

More than 60 per cent of our pupils are board­ers so there’s al­ways a lot go­ing on.

That’s a big ad­van­tage for day pupils who stay well into the evening and are fully in­volved in the myr­iad of ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able. Where tal­ent turns to achievement Strathal­lan’s 1st XV made his­tory win­ning the U18 Scot­tish Rugby Schools’ Cup for the first time.

The nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment and com­pre­hen­sive de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme cre­ated by our Director of Rugby and the coaches has put Strathal­lan firmly on the map as one of the top de­vel­op­ment schools for rugby in Scot­land.

All pupils reg­u­larly take part in a va­ri­ety of sports. We also run a com­pre­hen­sive pro­gramme for elite ath­letes.

In the Ex­pres­sive Arts, there are many op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop cre­ative tal­ents in a va­ri­ety of mu­si­cal en­sem­bles, in our the­atre and in our state-of- the-art dance and drama studio. Where be­long­ing is for­ever Strathal­lan pro­vides an ex­cep­tional ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence for boys and girls aged 9 to 18.

It’s a school where ef­fort is re­warded and where pupils are given the time and en­cour­age­ment to grow into ca­pa­ble, con­fi­dent young men and women who are ready for the chal­lenges that lie ahead.
