I have fantastic memories of winning Rugby Caps and representing The High School of Glasgow’s 1st XV.
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."
