We believe that the purpose of a school is to enable children to discover themselves, explore what they find interesting and exciting, and what challenges them. All of the pupils of Robert Gordon’s College are supported by staff to develop their individual strengths – whether that be academic progress, arts or sport – through unrivalled opportunity and choice, via academic breadth and extracurricular activities. At Robert Gordon’s College we offer the opportunity and diversity of a big school with the community and support of a small one.
As Head of College I am honoured to be part of a school where pupils, parents and staff respect each other, and are proud to contribute to their community. Robert Gordon’s College is a school where we look at the whole child and make education not just an academic goal, but a journey of challenge and self-discovery where pupils fulfil their potential. It’s no surprise that the everyday translation of our motto “omni nunc arte magistra” is “Be all you can be.”
The development of your daughter or son is the most valuable investment any family can make. We share those goals of developing each young person to their fullest extent.
I invite you to take the opportunity to learn more about Robert Gordon’s College and we look forward to welcoming you as a part of this special community.
