Lomond School – A great place to live and learn

At Lomond School we believe that balance is what drives happiness and success.

Here, at Lomond School, focus is balanced with opportunities for adventure and the discovery of new skills. Traditional values are married with innovative thinking and inspirational teaching and as the west of Scotland’s only day and boarding school, Lomond School welcomes families from around the world to enjoy a first-class education and lifestyle where a strong British education is complemented by an international school community.

Our unique location in the coastal town of Helensburgh, on the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, provides a perfect setting to deliver a rounded education which inspires achievement and enquiring minds.

Our pupils have access to fantastic facilities and passionate teachers and support staff who nurture each child’s individual progress. Our love for the outdoors and learning beyond the classroom presents a unique opportunity for our young people to develop a huge range of skills which build confidence and can be applied to academic learning and life beyond school.

At Lomond, pupils enjoy a lifestyle where a culture of hard work permeates but is complemented by a sense of fun and adventure. Whether pupils join at Sixth Form or complete their whole education at the school, Lomond’s young people leave with a strong sense of achievement and an appetite for lifelong learning.

From Junior 1 to S6, our dedicated and talented teaching staff deliver a rich and varied curriculum which ensures children are encouraged to love learning right from the start and are challenged and inspired throughout their school career. We aim to harness each child’s talents and strengths to ensure they become the very best that they can be.

Our Senior School pupils enjoy a broad curriculum with a wide range of subject choices, complemented with high levels of personalised support and expert guidance from staff with our exam results over recent years speaking for themselves; we were delighted to see all our 2020 S6 leavers this year achieve their first choice University place.

As a candidate school for the IB Diploma and IB Careers-related Programmes, we are looking forward to increasing further the breadth of choice for our senior school pupils from August 2021.

Our boarding house, Burnbrae, is home to up to 60 boys and girls from both the UK and around the world. We accept children from the age of 9 into boarding and we value the richness and diversity our international boarders bring to our school community.

As well as full-time boarders, we also welcome a number of boarders each year who come to experience language or immersion programmes for one term or one year. We are very happy to work with families to provide an option which best suits their circumstances.

Lomond School provides a great place to live and learn for all our pupils.
