About our School

Lathallan School, located on the beautiful Aberdeenshire coastline in the north-east of Scotland, offers excellent opportunities for all young people to develop their full range of talents academically and beyond.

Lathallan is truly special; a Scottish castle set in magnificent grounds, where pupils have the opportunity to shine and be proud of their own individual achievements.

It is a place in which challenge, industriousness and maximising individual potential is pivotal in our pupils’ educational development.

We hope you find the information on the website informative and interesting. However nothing compares to visiting the school in person to truly experience what makes Lathallan School so special.

We look forward to welcoming you.
