Pipes & Drums

Reflecting the ceremonial tradition of Gordon's

A unique and famous feature of Gordon's is our 50 strong Pipes and Drums Band. The Pipes and Drums reflect the ceremonial tradition of Gordon's School, which has been established for over 100 years. The Pipes and Drums play not only for our nine annual ceremonial parades, but are also in high demand for fetes, charity dinners, balls and other events outside the school. The Pipes and Drums wear a form of military uniform incorporating the Gordon tartan, and the same uniform is worn by all students for ceremonial parades.

Our aspiration is to have a Band that is world renowned, a reason why some students might chose Gordon’s ahead of any other school. In the coming years we aim for the Band to tour overseas, to compete in regional, British (Scottish Schools annual gathering) and international competitions (World Championships in Glasgow), and form lasting links with UK and overseas schools that also have Pipes & Drums.
