Principal's Welcome

The Principal, Simon Reid
 

Welcome to Gordonstoun’s website which I believe represents something unique. I hope it will capture your imagination and leave you feeling that you have caught a glimpse of a school which can offer its students an outstanding prospect.

Gordonstoun is sometimes described as a movement rather than a school and it is perhaps this sense of belonging, leading and doing something of real significance, that gives it a special distinctive character.  It is not recognised simply as a leader in its field, rightly renowned for its academic core, the accomplishments of its students as individuals, its boarding ethos and unusually broad range of students. These, of course, are all fine commendations but the enduring uniqueness of Gordonstoun is its mission to promote and ensure the development of international citizens for the twenty-first century – and it provides a curriculum which ensures that this actually happens.

The evidence for success is clear. You will find members of Gordonstoun ten years after they have left are invariably happy, successful and receptive to others and other communities. This is an education that caters for all types, treats them as individuals and considers what they can do for the world as well as what they may need from it. We have a real sense of mission about what we do and being part of that mission, for students and teachers, is as exhilarating as it is rewarding.

I hope you will take the time to view our website where you will find a wealth of information about our unique curriculum as well as up-to-date  news and current developments.
