Welcome to the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships.

The 2018 Championships take place on Sunday 11th March at Inveralmond Community High School in Livingston.

The Championships offer a positive and friendly experience for players who are new to competition, as well a forum for bands at the very top of their game.  Schools need just four pipers in their midst, or three pipers and a tutor, to be able to enter a Quartet.  The Debut category offers a thrilling opportunity for new players to showcase their musical skills and to take home a prize.  A range of other categories cater for bands competing at every level all the way up to Juvenile where Scotland’s most skilled and young players battle it out for the prizes.

The deadline for entries is 26th January 2018.

The Championships are organised by the Scottish Schools Pipes and Drums Trust, a charity.  If you would like to know more about setting up, and funding a pipe band in your school, please contact us through the website.
