Prospective Parents & Boys /
The School welcomes applications from all over Scotland, the UK
and overseas - both for boarders and day pupils. Boys can apply to
enter the School at any age between 8 and 16.
Main entry ages are at ages 8 to 14, and at 16+ for the Sixth
Form. A range of scholarships is available, and parents may
apply for means-tested financial assistance (see the links on the
left for more details).
Entry is by the School's own entrance exam; Scholarship exams or
Common Entrance (for Prep School entrants joining at 13 years old)
may also be taken.
Applications are also welcome for the Tennis Academy
Scotland and the Golf Academy. Please see the sections of
this site for more information. Entrance for these specialist
programmes is through a different process; the Director of
Admissions can provide details upon enquiry.
We suggest that you request a prospectus and arrange a
tour prior to proceeding further. If you would like to start
your application immediately, see details of the Registration
process. The Registration Form is also available with our
Prospectus Pack or from the Admissions team.
For details of what will happen after making an
application, please follow the link.
