Additional Information

Glenalmond College is one of the UK’s leading co-educational boarding schools, with an excellent record of academic achievement. 

Over 80% of pupils are boarders.  Most of our pupils are British:  only 25% are from outside the UK and only 7% are from outside Europe. 

All teachers live on campus and there is a full programme of activities each weekend.  School life is as busy at the weekend as it is during the week.

Every year, around half of Glenalmond pupils get places at Oxford, Cambridge and the Russell Group universities and almost all leavers get into their first choice of university.

Glenalmond College is located on a 300 acre countryside campus in Perthshire, Scotland, one hour’s drive from Edinburgh/Glasgow airports, which are one hour’s flight from London.  The campus has excellent academic, creative and sporting facilities, and is an inspiring environment for young people to learn and grow.
