Boarding School, Scotland - Lomond School


A warm welcome from the Principal

At Lomond School, we prepare our pupils for their future by ensuring that they learn the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century whilst developing the traditional values and qualities that they require to be responsible and active global citizens.

Lomond School blends the old with the new seamlessly: a visit to Clarendon, which makes up part of our Junior School, is a clear example of this with its beautifully restored period features sitting comfortably alongside the latest in technology. In fact, the facilities at Lomond are enviable, with a purpose-built sports complex, modern and homely boarding house and a 1-1 iPad programme for all pupils from Transitus 1 (Primary 6) to Senior 6.

We are situated in the leafy town of Helensburgh, nestled between the banks of the River Clyde and Loch Lomond. This enables us to make the most of our unique location, with a strong commitment to extra-curricular activities and a particular emphasis on Outdoor Education.

As with any independent school, we have an excellent track record of academic attainment, but that is only a part of what we offer. I believe that the purpose of education should be to develop the whole child; at Lomond we do this in a supportive and nurturing environment with small classes that allow each and every one of our pupils to be known and recognised as individuals. In turn, this allows us to deliver a personalised education that allows every Lomond pupil to work towards his or her full potential in our inspirational environment.

Our pupils are happy, confident and rightly proud of their achievements and their school. I hope our website gives you a sense of this and a feel for who we are. Should you wish to come and visit our school to see this for yourself, you would be more than welcome.
