Welcome to our website which I hope you will find interesting and informative.
If you are a parent considering sending your child to Madras College, thank you for taking the time to look at the information on our website. Here you will find details about the history of the school, our achievements and the extensive range of activities we have to offer.
Madras College is presently located on two sites in St Andrews, serving S4 to S6 in the South Street building and S1 to S3 in the Kilrymont Road site. In February 2013, the pupil roll stood at 1319. There are three playing areas and a small all weather area at Kilrymont Road, while the main playing fields are at Station Park adjacent to the main approach to St Andrews from the North West. A six-year comprehensive, the school serves a catchment area of 180 square miles with many villages and small towns each with their own distinctive character.
In recent years the proportion of pupils from St Andrews has dropped to one third, with two-thirds bussed daily. The range of communities and the different sizes of the 15 associated primaries make inclusion a crucial element in the transition period. The RAF base and the University create a population of pupils who arrive throughout each session. These pupils enrich an already cosmopolitan pupil body. The Parent Council is very active in support of the school and the pupil body.
