Service


Service at Gordonstoun is concerned with fostering and developing a sense of responsibility and a feeling of care towards all fellow beings.

It involves each student demonstrating a willingness to give up his or her time and effort to benefit another individual or group without expecting return or reward.

Service helps students develop a sense of social responsibility and sensitivity to people from different backgrounds and circumstances. Putting others before self is a commitment and a discipline that will live with them as they go through life.

The notion of service within, and for, the local community is evident throughout the School, from the Junior School right through to the Senior School.

Students from Year 11 upwards are expected to take part in one of the twelve Services on offer at the Senior School.  Service training takes place every Wednesday afternoon as part of the curriculum.

These Services offer a range of opportunities from supporting the local community to providing emergency services.  Many of the Services include training which leads to nationally-recognised qualifications that will be useful beyond School life.
