Sixth Form pupils follow the A-Level curriculum. Some Scottish Higher and B Tech options are also available.

Games & The Arts

A huge range of sports are on offer as well as an impressive programme of outdoor and adventure pursuits. Many of our pupils join the CCF and our pipe bands, and there are music and drama productions to bring out our pupils’ artistic talents.

The dedicated pastoral team create a close-knit family atmosphere in which pupils develop cohesive and supportive friendship groups. Each boarding house has a resident housemaster or housemistress who is the first point of contact for parents and pupils alike working to build a positive pastoral and academic experience for all.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

School has got to be fun. I believe education is about developing good people, good citizens, who have done their best at school, fulfilled their potential, made great friends, had great experiences and leave with a wide range of interests and an understanding of their values and of how they want to make the world a better place.
