At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Following the announce­ment of a new headmaster for Strathallan School, the chairman of governors, Richard Linton, is delighted to announce that Mark Lauder will take up his role at the start of the new academic year in September.
Mr Lauder has enjoyed notable successes in his past seven years at Ashville where he has overseen a rise in public exam results at A Level and GCSE to achieve record highs and a significant increase in pupil numbers.
He will take over from Bruce Thompson, who has led Strathallan for the past 17 years.
Under Mr Thompson’s guidance Strathallan has enjoyed significant acad­emic, sporting and creative achievements.
Highlights include an £18 million investment programme which has resulted in extensive new facilities, including a new girls’ boarding house, dance and drama studio, indoor tennis facilities and a strength and conditioning suite, as well as classroom and accommodation refur­bishment.
