Coronavirus update

Find out how we are keeping our community safe.

We have adopted the Boarding Schools’ Association ‘Covid Safe’ Charter thereby promising to comply with all government rules and guidance and meet strict requirements set out by the BSA. This has allowed us to operate successfully during the pandemic and, following robust risk assessments, we are the only UK school to continue with a programme of residential sail training. We have taken advantage of our 200 acre rural campus to move many lessons outdoors and have also safely continued with expeditions to the coast and into the countryside of the Scottish Highlands.

We continue to monitor the situation closely and follow UK and Scottish Government advice. In the unlikely event that we need to return to online learning, this can be done quickly and seamlessly. Gordonstoun parent Clare Cotton recently spoke to The Times newspaper about her positive experience of using our digital learning to educate five children.

Our school motto ‘Plus est en vous’ (there is more in you) is more relevant than ever.
