Independent schools

Why do parents send their children to independent schools in ever-growing numbers? Parents choose to send their children to independent schools for many different reasons, including choice, diversity and excellence, but, above all, because they feel a particular school will best serve their child’s social and educational needs.

All independent schools in Scotland have their own unique ethos and values, but they share a common goal of encouraging each individual pupil to be all they can be. Independent schools enjoy a reputation for excellence, providing a broad curriculum, consistently good exam results, a positive learning environment and a wealth of co-curricular activities. Being independent gives each school the freedom to provide the best education for the benefit of its pupils. Many schools have developed individual strengths that complement the excellence that is the hallmark of the sector. The choice of schools is wide and there are also special schools that provide care and education for children with additional needs.
