Boarding & day

We welcome boarding & day pupils.

Diversity is very important at Gordonstoun, so we are delighted to have a good mix of both boarders and day pupils. Children come from as far afield as the Far East, the Middle East, Africa and Europe, adding to the rich cultural mix here in the rolling Moray countryside.

Junior boarding pupils have their very own home, Aberlour House, where they share comfortable rooms with no more than six other children. They can decorate their cabin bed however they chose, making their private space their own.

We offer a choice of full and weekly boarding and even flexi boarding, which gives parents the opportunity to book regular nights. We have an exciting and varied seven day programme which keeps the children entertained, engaged and happy. Weekend activities include barbecues, games, rocket building, film nights, trips to the local beaches, castles and nearby outdoor attractions including wildlife and adventure parks.

Day pupils play a full and equal part in life at Gordonstoun Junior School and are welcome to join in any boarding activities if there is space. They are also invited to stay for supper and take part in after class activities and prep at school, on each weekday.

It is all part of the inclusive, varied and richly rewarding life here at one of the country’s best boarding schools.
