Outdoor Education

The Gordonstoun curriculum is unique in ensuring that all students in both the Junior and Senior Schools undergo outdoor education throughout their time in the School. These activities are not optional extras. They are essential to students' personal development plans and they are also included in School fees.

Gordonstoun's outdoor education and learning programme consists of three elements:

Expeditions

Sail Training

Adventure activities


These are all specifically designed to challenge students to build on their strengths, recognise their limitations and develop their full potential. Placing students in a different context from one they normally find themselves in, is a powerful learning tool. The learning that comes from outdoor education is not just acquisition of new knowledge, skills and information but a deeper level of personal understanding that becomes embodied within individuals.

The outdoor education and learning opportunities provide a range of experiences that enable students to develop the qualities and attributes that they will need to survive and thrive in a changing world. These key qualities and attributes are:
