About Strathallan School

Mission statement

"Our mission is to provide an outstanding education, academic, social and extra-curricular, which gives opportunities for all pupils to excel, developing their abilities to benefit themselves and others."


Strathallan offers 24 subject choices – making it one of the broadest curriculums in Scotland. The school is unique, being the first in Scotland to offer pathways including full Highers and Advanced Highers alongside full GCSE and A Levels. This allows flexibility and the opportunity for students to undertake the exams that suit them best.

The school produces impressive exam results too with 67% of students studying A Level achieving A* - A grades in 2021.

Activities & sports

Sport is an important aspect of life at Strathallan, with many elite pupils competing at national and international level. The school’s sport development programme provides a nurturing environment for students to reach their full potential, supported by expert coaches and partnerships with professional bodies such as Scottish Rugby and Scottish Hockey. Regardless of ability and experience, there are opportunities for students to take part in a range of sports.

Creative pupils can also access extra-curricular activities to develop their interests and skills. Over 25 music groups of different styles rehearse every week, and students can get involved in extra drama classes and make use of the school’s performing spaces.

International student community

Strathallan School welcome students from over 28 countries. The mix of nationalities and cultures allows students to establish meaningful and lasting connections with other students from all around the world. Strathallan understand that the reasons some international students struggle at A Level is due to struggling with English language skills. To help overseas pupils succeed at A Level, Strathallan offers an A Level Preparation Course (APC) which is also available online.

Boarding life

Strathallan ensures all pupils are involved with school life. Around 60% of Strathallan students are boarders and there is a real sense of community on campus, created by staff who live on site and a busy schedule with planned weekend activities. Day pupils are also assigned to houses, encouraging boarders and non-boarders to mix. Campus is home to seven Senior School boarding houses, each with its own unique character. Students will be supported by a Houseparent, matron, house tutors and a domestic team who all prioritise student wellbeing.
