Headmaster Dr McLaughlin said, ‘I am truly delighted that The Doon School has been given the opportunity to join its peers in a global context. It is a great tribute to the reputation of the school and the quality of the boys that we have at Doon. I have been very fortunate to have been in membership of HMC before.  I am really looking forward to being back in HMC and to representing the Doon School within this prestigious organisation.’   Membership of the organization will also extend greater opportunities for masters and boys to go on exchanges and for teachers to have access to training.

At a time when many boys’ schools are under pressure to go co-educational, the members of the Coalition are banding together to ensure that boys’ education continues to flourish around the globe.’
