It’s not just a pair of boots.
It’s standing on your own two feet.
It’s taking everything life throws at
you in your stride.
And it’s leading the way, while offering
a helpful hand to those around you.
At Gordonstoun, all students take part in a
programme of expeditions.
It’s not a break from the classroom
(where our teaching is genuinely
world class).
It’s an essential part of our curriculum and a
principle we’ve held in the highest regard for
more than 80 years.
That the role of a school is not just to
prepare students for exams.
It’s to prepare them for life.
Broader experiences,
broader minds.
