The School

  • Strathallan is one of Scotland's leading independent co-educational boarding and day schools, for children aged 9-18, located on a beautiful campus in 150 acres of rural Perthshire, just a few miles from the City of Perth.
  • This appeals to parents from all over the world (14% of our international students are represented from 22 different countries) as it is surprisingly more accessible than many other schools in the UK.
  • Throughout Strathallan School, the supportive environment values each pupil and places emphasis on the importance of individuality within our community. The ideals of responsibility, tolerance and integrity are developed, encouraging pupils to become happy, confident and well-adjusted individuals, prepared for the challenges of adult life.
  • The curriculum is largely based on the English system, with some elements of the Scottish system. Most pupils study for GCSEs, although some study for Standard Grades in one or two subjects. Then, in their last two years, in sixth form, they study for either A-levels or Scottish Highers. 95% of pupils go to university, including a number to Oxford University and Cambridge University, but most prestigiously to the University of St Andrews. 82% of this year’s A level entries were graded A*/B grades.
  • Academic work is central to life at Strathallan. Over 95% of pupils go on to University or some other form of Higher Education, and the A-level results are among the best in the country.
