Boarding in Scotland
Scotland’s boarding schools seek to prepare students for the modern world, not only by giving them a springboard to university, but by equipping them with resourcefulness and resilience that will serve them well in a modern, changing, global world.
All of Scotland’s boarding schools have alumni who have forged successful careers across the board, from traditional professions such as doctors and lawyers to self-made entrepreneurs. A disproportionately high number of former pupils from Scotland’s independent schools are in the public eye – from high-profile journalists and politicians to Olympic sportsmen and women. However, boarding schools in Scotland admit students of all abilities and seek to enable each individual to reach their own potential, whatever their abilities.
