Outdoor Education

In the Senior School, our Outdoor Education Programme is delivered by school clubs and through the curriculum.

The Hillwalking, Climbing, Kayaking and Winter Sports’ clubs are all very popular and the combined Cadet Force offer our Army and RAF Cadets a wide range of outdoor pursuits at weekends and during annual camp. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is available at Bronze, Silver and Gold Levels. Uptake is strong at each stage and we pride ourselves on having the largest number of candidates of any independent school in Scotland.

A week in June is set aside each year for Second and Fifth Year Projects. Most are residential and many involve adventurous activities such as climbing, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, mountain biking and tent based expeditions.
