It’s not just a helmet
It’s a beacon of responsibility.
It’s facing life’s challenges head-on.
And it’s putting others before yourself.
At Gordonstoun, our students' experience of learning
goes way beyond the classroom.
Including to some very real emergencies.
Being of service to the community has been
part of our unique curriculum from day one
(1934 if you like your history).
Students provide real assistance to local
Coastguard, Community and Fire Services and are
currently involved in projects from Elgin to Ethiopia.
It doesn’t replace the academic side of things (where the
desire to fulfil every student’s potential burns brightly).
And it’s not your average school uniform.
But, then, there’s nothing average
about Gordonstoun.
Broader experiences,
broader minds.
