There is no limit to the emotionally, mentally, and physically stimulating activities that a young student will find at Gordonstoun School.
From camping out in the woods to assisting the Coast Guard responds to an emergency, boredom will not prevail at this North Scotland housed school.
There are other lessons like learning how to sail a sailboat and how to build up good habits in life.
Gordonstoun strives to make sure that every student is not only academically proficient when graduating, but also that they will progress personally, as well.
There have been 3 generations of the British Royal Family in attendance to its halls, and over 500 students are currently enrolled.
With its unique approach to education, Gordonstoun instills a sense of initiative, compassion, honesty, and the desire to better their own lives by bettering those of their peers.
This is why many graduates go on to MIT, Cambridge, and Oxford.
The school’s nearly one- century old motto, “Plus Est En Vous – There Is More In You,” still shines through today in how the school not only focuses on academic achievement but personal achievement, as well.
The English GCSE and A-Level curriculum are what is taught here with a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:7.
When they’re finished in the classroom they go to work on the 200-acre woodland property situated in the middle of the Moray country.
