Our mission is to provide an outstanding education that gives opportunities for all pupils to excel and perform to the very best of their abilities. We encourage each pupil to explore their talents and realise their potential academically, in the arts, in sport and in a host of other activities. Each individual, no matter their passion or interest, is supported and inspired to shine during their time at school. Consequently, our pupils achieve brilliant things. They excel academically, compete in sports at national and international levels, succeed in scholastic championships, perform on national stages and play as part of nationwide orchestras and ensembles. We like to think there is something for everyone and any parent choosing Strathallan will quickly realise that their child will be known here - for who they are, for their individual abilities and for their potential.
Academically, we strive for excellence and our focus is to prepare pupils for higher education and beyond. Our flexible curriculum and innovative teaching means we can support every pupil, whatever their ambitions and style of learning. Our pupils go on to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, international study, work placements, professional sporting careers or even start their own business.
An all round education
We believe that learning outside the classroom bolsters success inside the classroom – that’s why we offer over 80 activities including everything from fencing to debating and clay target shooting to Model United Nations. This holistic approach to education leads to a rich diversity of pupil experience and some exceptional achievements academically, in sports, the arts and many other areas. It also supports the development of well-rounded young people equipped with the appropriate skills to succeed in life.
Strathallan is a close, safe and caring community. A large proportion of staff live on site with their families, creating a nurturing environment that feels like a home away from home for our boarding pupils. We welcome day pupils in exactly the same way as boarding pupils and they share the full Strathallan experience together. All pupils are thoroughly involved in the life of their House and participate in School activities during the day, in the evenings and at weekends too.
Although we enjoy the advantages of a self-contained, rural location, we’re an international community and welcome young people from around the globe. This diversity of experience gives our pupils the maturity and cultural intelligence to go out into the world and succeed, as well as enjoying a worldwide network of friends. Young people leave Strathallan prepared for the future. They have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in their chosen career, and the confidence to make their mark on the world.
