[edit] Aberlour House

Main article: Aberlour House

Aberlour House, the preparatory school for Gordonstoun, was relocated to Gordonstoun's grounds from Aberlour in 2004. It is made up of dormitories, classrooms and communal areas in one building. Other lessons, like art and design technology for example, are done in the main Gordonstoun classroom area. Construction of the building was completed in 2004 and in 2006, large extensions were added to the existing building, incorporating additional classrooms and dormitaries. At the moment around 100 children aged between 8 and 13 years of age attend, but this is expected to rise with the coming extension. [3]

[edit] Alumni

Alumni of Gordonstoun are called "Old Gordonstounians" or "OGs":

Gordonstoun School’s illustrious history would not be complete without reference to Leila Margaret Rendel OBE as a Gordonstoun School founder and longstanding governor. Leila M. Rendel ran her own school The Caldecott Community first as a London nursery founded 1911; later as a changeable establishment; whether; for children from poor families, as a borstal or experimental, pioneering therapeutic community from which a small trail of Leila’s talented; if nondescript; boy Caldecott’s went on to complete ‘their education’ at Gordonstoun School. It is understood the Gordonstoun School archive references L.M.R. re Gordonstoun as well as in relation to national educational pertinences to which Leila Magaret Rendel had been invited to contribute. Latterly c.2000 'The Caldecott Community' titled comfortably through decades is now re-titled 'The Caldecott Foundation'.

The fictional Lara Croft is also claimed to have attended the school.[6] This may have been inspired by James Bond's "attendance" of Fettes College.
