Beautifully designed and richly illustrated throughout, this book celebrates all that the School has encompassed in its past, as well as the rich and inspiring education it continues to offer, through lively narrative, rare archive images, recollections from alumni and friends of Gordonstoun and specially commissioned new photography.

It shows how the philosophy and intentions of the founder Kurt Hahn both formed and continue to shape the rich educational experience offered by the School. Included, too, are descriptions and pictures of the Gordonstoun experience in the various locations which have been home to the School, along with vibrant evocations of the traditions of service and outdoor activities which have characterized Gordonstoun life over eight decades.
