Mr. Storrie looked back at their time at Falkland House School.

"There can be no doubt that Ruairidh's time at Falkland House School has been a resounding success. Over a period of five years we have witnessed Ruairidh grow into a confident young man who has worked hard to earn his place at college and to live independently when he leaves the school....
