Lomond School is a co-educational independent school, for children aged 3 to 18 years, positioned in the elegant suburbs of the coastal town of Helensburgh and located only 10 minutes from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
At Lomond School we believe passionately that education should be about supporting our young people to develop and grow, both academically and personally, as rounded individuals with strong values who are ultimately prepared to embark confidently and successfully on their life beyond Lomond School.
We provide small class sizes, an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, attention to the individual and a strong record of academic achievement. All aspects of development are accorded importance, be they academic, musical, dramatic, sporting or in wider outdoor activities.

All pupils from Junior 1 through to Senior 2 have Drama lessons as a core part of their curriculum with S4 as part of a rota.

Our most recent Senior School shows include: Grease, Romeo & Juliet and Guys & Dolls.
