Through our Striving Higher campaign we intend to build up a Foundation fund to sustain co-curricular activities and our benevolent funds. We also have ambitious plans to improve facilities in Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) and Sport in the medium term.

To realise these ambitions we need to raise £1M+ over the next 3-5 years and £3M+ over 10 years.

We believe that this campaign will draw support from a range of sources, such as grant making bodies, our alumni, gifts in will, individuals and families giving regularly, and through specific project related appeals to our community.

As we approach 100 years, Jordanhill remains one of the best schools in the UK and is world class in many of its practices and achievements. We thank you for your support in sustaining that excellence.

The envisaged new Sports Building will create a coherent whole from the existing dated facilities, provide additional changing rooms, replace the existing changing rooms and create a new Fitness Suite.

Our sports hall and the changing rooms are 50 years old! Many of our readers will have memories of them and would recognise them today.

The indicative illustration shows the proposed glass fronted fitness suite and new entrance to the PE building. A detailed feasibility study is looking at options which are on a larger scale than shown. Costs would be from £500,000 depending upon the final configuration.

Feasibility studies have been completed to enhance our STEM facilities. This would involve the construction of additional teaching spaces as well as the refurbishment of existing buildings which are now over 50 years old.

This would improve opportunities for Jordanhill pupils and as an Advanced Higher hub would also broaden access for pupils from neighbouring schools.

The costs are in excess of £1M.

New Pitches Launched!

Over the summer of 2018 the all-weather pitch was replaced with a top of the range sand dressed hockey surface and a new 3G surface was laid on the MUGA.  Here are some progress shots of the installation.

Thank you to everyone who made generous contributions to the appeal for the new pitches raising over £12,600.

The Development office was set up in August 2017 and co-ordinates activity relating to alumni, fundraising and future developments of Jordanhill School.

As our centenary approaches we aim to reach out and build up as many  relationships with former pupils and friends of the School as possible. We hope to give parents, former pupils and friends the chance to deepen their involvement with the School and share in its success.

Our Director of Development is Gavin McLellan, and he is based in the South Campus.  You may wish to discuss giving at a personalised level with Gavin, he can be contacted on:

Jordanhill School Educational Amenities Trust Fund

All gifts received will go to the Educational Amenities Trust Fund (EA Trust) to be used in accordance with the Trust’s objectives.

No funds will be used to pay for any of the core educational provision which is the responsibility of the state. Gifts will be directed to the Centenary Foundation Fund within the EA Trust which will support capital projects, our co-curricular programmes and the benevolent fund.
