A new school, Gordonstoun Nova Scotia, will be built in Nova Scotia, a Canadian province with historical ties to the original Scottish school. A consortium led by Canadian businessman Edward Farren is working with the local government to build a 250-acre campus in Annapolis County, where students can get an education based on the approach of Britain's leading Gordonstone School.

The Gordonstoun Nova Scotia campus is nestled between the sea and the hills, in an area similar to the stunning Scotland home to the famous British school. Gordonstone's ties to Nova Scotia go back hundreds of years. The school's main building, Gordonstoun House, was originally owned by Sir Robert Gordon, who was the first Baronet of Nova Scotia and in 1625 set aside 16,000 acres of coastal land for the Barony of Nova Scotia.

Gordonstoun Nova Scotia is slated to open in the fall of 2021.
