Visiting & Applying to Board in Scotland

You are assured of a warm welcome when you visit any of Scotland’s boarding schools.

Boarding schools in Scotland are delighted to welcome students, their families and overseas agents for visits during term time. They all offer personal tours, by appointment, and many also hold annual Open Days.

Open Days usually include a talk by the Head Teacher that gives an overview of the school, followed by tours of the departments where displays and activities are organised. Visitors particularly enjoy being shown around by student guides which allows them to hear what the school is like from a student’s perspective.

Open days are held throughout the school year, although most commonly in May, September, October and November.

To arrange a visit, please contact the Registrar or Admissions Secretary in the individual schools.
