Plus Est En Vous - there is more in you … the Gordonstoun motto is as relevant today as it was when visionary educationalist, Kurt Hahn, founded our unique school in 1934.

For more than eighty years Gordonstoun has been the world leader in character education, with a curriculum which, unrivalled in its breadth, helps every child to achieve their full potential.

With its mountains and forests, historic buildings and golden sandy beaches, our home county of Moray may be one of Scotland’s best kept secrets, but it is no secret that the world today needs young people who have benefited from the education which Gordonstoun provides. It’s an education founded on the simple ethos that it takes life skills, as well as academic success, to flourish.

In a world where there are no longer jobs for life and where change is faster than any of us could have imagined, at Gordonstoun we give young people the skills they will need throughout their lives. They learn how to work in a team and how to lead as well as how to recognise the leadership skills of others. They learn confidence, resilience and the importance of being open to new ideas. And we marry these skills with a focus on perhaps the most important of human attributes: compassion and kindness.

These skills are developed as much in the classroom, where superb teachers share their passion in exciting and stimulating lessons, as they are on our outstanding programme of expeditions, sail training and adventurous activity. They are built in the concert hall, the stage and the sports field. Crucially, they are honed in service to others (in one of nine services from our own fire station to first aid, sports coaching and community service) in which every senior student participates.

At Gordonstoun, every student experiences the full richness of our curriculum; that’s how we help children to discover their own talents and their own vital role in the world. We look forward to welcoming you to Gordonstoun where you will see for yourself how broader experiences create broader minds.
