Welcome to the Preston Lodge High School pipe bands!


The Preston Lodge High School pipe band programme was established in 2007 and now fields a development, novice and juvenile band.  Tuition is free, and pupils start to learn in the primary schools that feed into Preston Lodge High School. The bands perform locally, further afield in Scotland and sometimes abroad.  Pupils take part in solo and band competitions and can achieve qualifications through the Curriculum for Excellence and the Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board.  The programme is mainly funded by the Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust

Young people of all ages and abilities, across the primary and secondary sector, have benefited immeasurably from the skill development and self-esteem building that piping and drumming can provide.” Read more from PLHS Head Teacher Gavin Clark here.

My son has gained in so many ways.  His confidence and self belief in what he does, and what he can do, has extended to all aspects of his life.   I’m sure this will be the same for others who experience being a part of PLPB.”   A parent
