About the School

Craigclowan provides a warm and nurturing environment for boys and girls aged 3 – 13 to learn and grow. Set in stunning grounds with magnificent views over Perthshire, the school has a distinguished history, a reputation for the highest standards and expectations and a passion for childhood.

Craigclowan delivers a modern education within a framework of traditional values. With a dedicated, caring and supportive ethos, the staff are very close to the children, and the families, in their care and treat them as individuals in all they do. Every child is encouraged to achieve their all-round potential, in the classroom, on the sports fields, on the stage and in the music and art departments.

The school aims to make the most of the world outside the classroom through a wide range of outdoor activities that build confidence and resilience, encourage creativity and problem solving and ensure rosy cheeks and muddy boots. Wellie boots and waterproofs are a must! When it comes to moving on to senior school, pupils go on to attend a wide variety of top UK schools, both north and south of the border, many with scholarships under their belts. The values that are instilled in children during their journey through Craigclowan, are the qualities that allow them to thrive after they leave.

School is a hive of activity from 0730 until 1800, with a family-friendly wraparound care programme before and after lessons. The school minibus fleet collects children from across the region and Craigclowan’s ever-popular holiday activity camps operate throughout the year. Grant funding is available for nursery pupils setting out on their Craigclowan adventure.
