Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Perth Grammar School.
Whether you are visiting for the first time or you are a regular visitor, this website is designed to provide you with the information you need.
At Perth Grammar, through our core values of ‘Pride, Respect, Ambition’ we aim to encourage and support our young people to flourish as young global citizens with the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that will enable them to adapt and thrive in life, learning and work. This is in the context of our overarching vision of becoming an outstanding learning community with the highest expectation of and aspirations of all learners. Our motto is With Pride We Respect With Ambition We Strive.
Everything we do is geared towards this aim – our ethos, our curriculum, the opportunities we offer for qualifications and other achievements, the types of learning approaches we encourage, the activities we offer out of school and beyond the normal school day and the changes we make to the buildings and grounds.
We offer a very wide range of opportunities to succeed in qualifications within the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) and build up a portfolio of other achievements.
In 2018 we announced a strategic business partnership with Robertson Group to enhance learning and networking opportunities for our young people and this is developing very well.
Perth Grammar is one of a small number of secondary schools in Scotland to have achieved the prestigious Eco Schools Green Flag. This demonstrates our commitment to education for a sustainable future, encouraging young people to find solutions to the local and global environmental challenges we face. Part of this work is developing global awareness through international education. We have links with schools in Tanzania (via The Vine Trust) and Germany.
We have gained national recognition for our success as a sports comprehensive, in partnership with our neighbouring secondary, St John’s Academy. This has allowed us to develop a strong emphasis on health, wellbeing, sport and outdoor education. We have excellent sports facilities including a stadium and running track and our games hall is home to our state-of-the-art climbing wall.
The success of our school is built on the partnership of pupils, parents, staff and the wider community. With your help, we know that we are well-placed to offer our young people opportunities to realise their ambitions whilst also encouraging them to give something back.
Please do not hesitate to contact us about any aspect of the website either to make suggestions or find out more.
