Grounds and Location

The five houses and three school buildings are set in eight acres of grounds, located unobtrusively off the High Street of Auchterarder, 14 miles west of Perth.

This enables the school to be part of the local community, but also to provide a sheltered and secure environment for the pupils.

The grounds are beautiful and well tended, the houses likewise, and furnished to a high standard. The grounds are comprised of walled gardens, where organic vegetables and flowers are grown, an apple and soft fruit orchard, a small farm with ducks, geese, chickens and periodically pigs or lambs, an adventure playground, woodland and lawns. Pond The children and young people have regular opportunities to work on the land and care for the livestock, and through these activities are developing a a sense of responsibility for the environment.
