Beyond the Classroom

Children are actively encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities outwith the classroom. These activities are an important part of our School’s philosophy of educating the whole child.

Following on from the example of our Founder Robert Gordon, charity work is an important focus and the Junior School supports a wide range of local and national charities. Our pupils also have the opportunity to participate in the wider work of the school through the Pupil Council with representatives from Nursery to Primary 7.

“Pupils within the School benefit from the wide range of sporting, arts and science, technology, engineering and maths events, activities and competitions as well as music and drama productions.”

“The best parts of Junior School are the residential trips because the classes are then mixed. This way new friendships are created.”
