Strathearn Herald - - INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS -

As stated in the re­cent Good Schools Guide re­view, “Gle­nal­mond is set for a crack­ing fu­ture”.

2017 has seen the start of an ex­cit­ing new phase for the school, with two new houses open­ing this Septem­ber.

Cairnies, Gle­nal­mond’s new Ju­nior House, pro­vides the per­fect tran­si­tion to se­nior school, giv­ing boarding and day boys aged 12 to 14 a level of pas­toral sup­port specif­i­cally suited to younger pupils.

Close to the out­door class­room, the woods, Gle­nal­mond’s golf course and with its own play­ing fields, Cairnies pro­vides an ex­cel­lent base for ju­nior year groups.

The new girls’ house, Goodacre’s, has also opened this Septem­ber, and is home to girls aged 12 to 18.

This house is in the very heart of the school and has en­abled Gle­nal­mond to ex­pand its girls’ boarding and day pro­vi­sion to meet in­creas­ing de­mand.

New cur­ricu­lum de­vel­op­ments in­clude the ad­di­tion of Highers as an al­ter­na­tive to A Lev­els for Sixth Form pupils who pre­fer a broader sub­ject range. Man­darin is now taught at Gle­nal­mond, and other new sub­jects in­clude com­puter sci­ence and dance.

The school’s Open Day on Satur­day, Septem­ber 16 pro­vides the ideal op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to visit Gle­nal­mond and find out more about these de­vel­op­ments. To reg­is­ter for the Open Day, visit www.gle­nal­mond­col­lege.co.uk/ Open­Day.
