Strathal­lan School

Campbeltown Courier - - FEATURE -

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.

Aca­demic ex­cel­lence

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.

Wel­com­ing com­mu­nity

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.

Global out­look

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.
