“Each of Scotland’s six cities offers the best of the 21st century in a setting that stretches back hundreds of years.”

The school nestles in the heart of the East Lothian countryside at the base of the rolling Lammermuir Hills, close to the long sandy beaches of the Firth of Forth.  Scotland’s vibrant capital city, Edinburgh, with its wealth of enticing bars, restaurants, history and culture, is only half an hour’s drive from the school.

The nearby village of Gifford has a cosy cafe and two great pubs, the Goblin Ha’ Hotel and the Tweedale Arms, and the village holds a number of seasonal events and activities.

There are over 20 golf courses within half an hour of the School, and three within ten minutes.  There are good swimming pools at nearby towns, together with facilities for tennis, bowls, football, rugb, hockey and sailing.

And there is no shortage of things to do after the school day ends, with opportunities to visit other areas of this beautiful country at weekends and during the holidays.

A drive of one and a half hours brings you into the Scottish Highlands with its stunning hill-walking, climbing and seasonal skiing.
