ACG Strathallan Preschool (children aged 3 months to 5 years)
ACG Strathallan Preschool helps children acquire a variety of important skills, knowledge and attitudes that will affect their ability to learn, their personal development, their relationships and their future achievement.
ACG Strathallan Preschool Centre encourages children to see learning as both enjoyable and useful, and it provides a strong foundation for future intellectual, social and physical development. There is a strong emphasis on oral language development and opportunities for thinking, problem solving and experimenting. The Centre offers a modern, stimulating and safe place to learning through well-equipped classrooms, pleasant outdoor areas and the creation of a lively and interesting environment.
ACG Strathallan School (Years 1 to 6)
The primary school has specialist teachers in art, music and physical education, providing students with the opportunity to experience these skills to a much higher level, much earlier in their development.
ACG Strathallan School provides an excellent base for future development. It is a productive environment where the teamwork between teachers and students develops a positive work ethic and a love of learning. Individual attention is maximised in each classroom.
ACG Strathallan College (Years 7 to 13)
Programmes are designed to challenge and to stimulate good learning and preparation for living and working in the 21st century. Effective use of technology is integrated into educational programmes at all levels.
There is a focus on the individual and the educational achievement and progress of each student. A key component of this is the development of individual academic goals under the guidance of a teacher/mentor.
