Headmaster’s Welcome

Welcome to the Lathallan School website.

Whilst reading our website I hope you get a real feel for the vision and values of Lathallan School, which makes us so unique. At Lathallan we successfully marry the ethos of a traditional school with a modern outlook; this approach has seen us become one of the fastest growing independent schools in Scotland in recent years.

At the heart of the Lathallan experience we strive to help all of our pupils achieve their full potential. Our main aim is for each young person passing through our school doors to discover and develop themselves, and leave as accomplished young adults prepared for life after school.

Our focus is on the individual pupil. Our class size average is 12; allowing our staff to give each child the very best care. I am proud that at Lathallan School every member of staff knows each child by name and nature, which means we can fully understand and appreciate each child’s hopes and aspirations for the future, and equip them with the tools to be successful.

Lathallan does not have entrance exams, we assess each child on his or her own merit. We strongly believe that every child deserves to enjoy the success of their individual abilities in whatever field they lie – in the classroom, on the sports field, in the arts, in personal achievement.

It is now a decade since the Board of Directors decided to extend Lathallan School from its original Preparatory School remit and develop a Senior School. In that decade there has been rapid development and progress, culminating in our new Science Centre which benefits all Lathallan pupils.

I hope the information that you are about to read about Lathallan School inspires you to visit us and I look forward to welcoming you to our Castle.
