School description

Strathallan School is one of Scotland's most advanced and well-known boarding schools. The educational institution was founded in 1913, and today it provides students from all over the world with high quality education on several international programs. The territory of the school Strathallan occupies 153 acres and is located in a quiet, safe, cozy area just south of the large city of Perth (this is the center of Perthshire county). The road from the campus to the Scottish capital of Edinburgh takes about 50 minutes, you can get to Glasgow in about an hour. The main buildings of the school were built in the 19th century, but most of the buildings are modern, fully technically functional. Stratallan School constantly improves and expands its infrastructure: from the latest innovations it is possible to note modern scientific laboratories, a technically advanced computer center, synthetic courts for sports, a specialized design center, a functional medical center, and the newest modern women's residence.

Strathallan School accepts children from 9 to 18 years old for education, half of them are enrolled on a full board basis. The total number of students reaches 500 people. Foreign students in the school are studying a little - only about 10%, the rest of the students are British. Here there is quite strict discipline, which helps to concentrate completely on learning, achieving your own academic goals. In order for a child of 9-12 years old to enroll in the school, you will need to provide a report card and a report from the school of your native country. To admit children over the age of 13, you will also need to pass a special entrance examination.

The school's curriculum is based on English programs and rules that are complemented by elements of the national Scottish educational process: the elements of the Standart Grades are included in secondary school education, and the features of Scottish Highers can be seen in the program for high school students. Studying is conducted in small groups of up to 15 people.

The last stage of the student's education in high school is the Six Form, designed for 2 years. During this time, students master the chosen program and prepare for final exams and subsequent admission to universities. You can prepare for one of two programs:

  • A-level is recognized as the "gold standard" of British education, it is the most common exam program in the UK. Its results and the certificate of completion of the program are accepted as entrance examinations to most of the world's universities;
  • Scottish Highers is a Scottish equivalent of A-level, equally respected and quoted in the European educational system. This certificate will make it possible to enter any college in Scotland and the United Kingdom without any problems due to careful and thorough preparation of students.

During the studying, students study 3-5 selected disciplines: when choosing, it is necessary to focus on those subjects that will be needed for further education at the university, which are related to the future profession and specialization. Professionals in vocational guidance and course teachers can give valuable advice on what subjects to choose for admission to the desired faculty. In addition, master classes, education fairs, presentations of university programs and numerous consultations are often arranged for senior students, which will help you to orient yourself in the variety of professional directions and will be able to more carefully and effectively prepare the student for a specialty.
