Glenalmond College - an Extraordinary Education

Located in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Glenalmond College is an award-winning school which offers a truly extraordinary place to learn. 

Just an hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow, boys and girls aged 12 - 18 thrive in Glenalmond’s unpolluted 300 acre grounds which offer endless opportunities for activities, fun and friendship.

Most of Glenalmond’s teachers live on site and this is a very important factor in the support each individual pupil receives in this bustling community where teamwork and leadership skills flourish alongside academic subjects, sport, music, drama and art. 

The school offers full and flexi boarding in its seven boarding houses and day pupils also have a room in a house.  With only around 360 pupils - an equal split of boys and girls - every child is individually known and class sizes are reassuringly small and this is enhanced by an excellent house-based tutor system.  

Excellent facilities abound - including an Olympic-standard, water-based hockey astro and a nine hole James Braid-designed golf course, along with a brand new indoor golf hub. 

Glenalmond was recently named as one of the UK’s top schools in the Tatler School Guide 2022.
Boxed off: “There could be no finer place to spend one’s school days..the atmosphere is warm, vibrant and busy...leavers depart fuelled with the ambition and knowledge to make a valuable contribution to the world,” - Tatler Schools Guide 2022.

Glenalmond recently won the “Best Academic Boarding School - Scotland” award in the LuxLife Private Education Awards and 89% of our 2021 leavers secured their first-choice university. The school also has its own theatre and an outstanding music, drama and art offer. It is a finalist in the Performing Arts category of the Independent School of the Year Awards 2021 and has just been named as one of Talk Education’s top 250 schools, one of only three senior schools in Scotland.

What really sets Glenalmond apart - after the unforgettable moment when you catch the first glimpse of the school buildings on the drive down Front Avenue - is the sense of warmth and friendliness visitors feel when they arrive and are welcomed by staff and pupils.
