Lomond School is a co-educational independent school, for children aged 3 to 18 years. Positioned in the elegant suburb of Helensburgh, only 10 minutes from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, our location delivers the perfect mix of town and country with Glasgow International Airport only 30 minutes away and cities steeped in culture and history on our doorstep.

We make the most of our unique location by providing and encouraging participation in a wide range of opportunities for outdoor learning, sports, trips and activities.

At Lomond School we believe passionately that education should be about supporting our pupils to develop and grow, both academically and personally. Our young people leave school as rounded individuals with strong values, prepared to embark confidently and successfully on their life beyond Lomond. We uphold this commitment with six Guiding Principles which are delivered throughout our curriculum and co-curriculum. These include: Internationalism; Environmentalism; Adventure; Leadership; Lifelong Learning and Service.

Living at Lomond

Our boarding house, Burnbrae, adds a distinctive dimension to the school; the mix of cultures and backgrounds enriches our curriculum and co-curriculum, supporting all of our pupils to develop their global awareness. Our experienced pastoral care team ensures the welfare and onward progression of all of our pupils. Our young people are well known by staff and teachers, and we see ourselves as a large family where any issues or problems are identified and dealt with promptly and effectively.

For our boarders, home is a short walk from the main school building, in a quiet residential area of Helensburgh. This is key to the formation of friendships outwith boarding, as it means that day pupils can visit their friends at Burnbrae and boarders, with parental permission, can visit their friends who are day pupils at the school with ease. The co-educational aspect allows siblings to live together under the same roof and further engenders a family atmosphere in the house. Boarders at Lomond live a full and exciting life in a safe and supportive environment.

Extra-curricular and Outdoor Learning

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is, without doubt, a significant feature and we have enjoyed great success carrying out expeditions both locally and abroad.

Many of our school trips and excursions revolve around our passion for the outdoors and have included trekking in Morocco, canoeing in Norway and skiing in Austria. We also build many cultural and educational trips into the school year with visits to Paris, Berlin, Brussels and Iceland, as well as Hockey and Rugby tours to South Africa or more locally. We support and encourage our young people to make the most of the opportunities available, recognising both the immediate and long-term benefits of the personal development these experiences and activities can offer.

A great place to live and learn

At Lomond, our pupils enjoy a fantastic lifestyle where a culture of hard work exists and is complimented by a sense of fun and adventure. Whether pupils stay for one term or complete their whole education at Lomond, our young people leave with a strong sense of achievement and an appetite for lifelong learning.
