University validates wider Curriculum

University of Edinburgh researchers were invited to explore Gordonstoun’s educational approach – which sees a curriculum involving wilderness hiking and compulsory community service – and found that non-academic experiences had an "overwhelmingly positive influence on students' personal growth and development". Almost 95% of former pupils said that such experiences had helped them to grow personally, 74% felt they had helped their careers and 57% believed they had enhanced their academic studies. Lisa Kerr, Gordonstoun's principal, said education chiefs should "sit up and take notice".
