Headmaster’s Welcome
I would like to welcome you to Craigclowan, the leading co-educational day prep school in Scotland. As well as having a distinguished history and a reputation for the very highest of standards and expectations, the school has an impressive record of academic achievement and significant extra-curricular success.
 
At Craigclowan we provide a dynamic and supportive learning environment for pupils between the ages of three and thirteen. We offer a modern and distinctive education, delivered within a framework of proven traditional values. We put much emphasis on enabling every pupil to maximise their all-round potential, be that through a comprehensive and suitably challenging academic curriculum, or by igniting interests through an extensive sporting, musical, artistic, dramatic and outdoor activities programme. This personalised approach lies at the very heart of a Craigclowan education. However, it is equally important to us that we develop essential life skills.  We want our pupils to be happy, well-rounded, confident and ambitious individuals, ready to play their part as successful learners, effective contributors and responsible citizens in the modern, dynamic world. When they move on to the senior school of their choice, they take with them plenty of friends, alongside the key attributes we believe in - tolerance, kindness, curiosity and enthusiasm.
 
The school is located to the south of the Fair City of Perth, in a wonderful rural setting with stunning countryside views. The pupils and our dedicated staff enjoy first class modern facilities, small class sizes and a stimulating learning environment.

The School Life area of our website will give you a better ‘feel’ for Craigclowan and a glimpse of the many enjoyable events which take place throughout the school year. However, why not see for yourself. I would be delighted to give you a personal tour of the school and show how your child could fulfil their potential through the many opportunities available at Craigclowan.

I look forward to meeting you.

Richard Evans
Headmaster
