The High School


The High School of Glasgow is one of Scotland's leading Independent Schools, welcoming children from ages 3-18.

We were founded in 1124 as the Sang School of Glasgow Cathedral and our roots within the city of Glasgow run deep. Today, we have campuses in Bearsden and Anniesland housing our Junior School and Senior School.

We are a vibrant and modern place of learning where we nurture each pupil throughout their entire High School journey, unearthing strengths and passions whilst also providing the best foundation for their future. Through discovering the joy of learning, potential is tapped into every single day and memories are created that will last our pupils a lifetime.



Across 2024 we celebrate 900 continuous years as a school.



It is a year of opportunity, bringing together past and present members of the School community through a series of events.




We will be celebrating the illustrious history of the School and pointing, with ambition, to the future.



We are launching the 900 Campaign in January, chaired by former Rector Colin Mair.

I could never have imagined the path my life has taken. There have been so many surprises (mostly good!) and I'm so glad I'm here."

Aside from an excellent education and a great sense of community, access to brilliant extracurricular activities really enriched the experience and taught me to multitask like a pro!

The thing that I see as most exceptional about the High School is the friendships that were nurtured over the years. My best friends from school remain my best friends today and this is something for which I am immensely grateful."
