The concept of challenge reflects our motto: Plus est en Vous' - 'There is more in you than you think'. Challenge is central to the Gordonstoun ethos.
Gordonstoun’s Founder, Kurt Hahn, believed that young people should be challenged academically, emotionally and physically and this is fully embraced in the opportunities that we offer our students.
Challenge comes in many guises just as it does in later life and is an important aspect of personal development. Whether it be in the classroom, up the mountains, on the sports field, on the stage, or any other aspect of School life, we believe that only by pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, can you truly develop as a person.
