Preparing them for their future…
Kilgraston is a world class boarding and day school, offering education for children aged five to eighteen. We have an enviable record of academic achievement at the highest levels.
Our ambition for each child is to stimulate and develop their individual character and personality. Our teaching inspires and challenges our children to aim at the highest level and enables them to attain it.
Our fundamental believe is that each child must feel valued, respected and emotionally secure. We therefore work hard to ensure that each pupil matures intellectually and personally through all their years at Kilgraston. The distinctive Kilgraston experience is designed to develop young people who have a thirst for life-long, independent learning and a vital commitment to making a real difference to the world around them.
Our aim is straightforward: each pupil will leave us with the potential to be the best they can be.
Kilgraston exam results were outstanding in 2021, seeing girls achieve above the national average, at all examination levels. In recent years, girls have secured places at some of the UK’s leading universities including Oxford, Durham, Imperial College London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews as well as some prestigious institutions overseas such as the University of Waterloo in Canada.
Sport is a significant part of life for every girl at Kilgraston, and our girls are encouraged to find the sport that suits them. For some, that may be ballet, yoga or zumba and for others what really appeals are the clashes of the hockey pitch, the personal challenge of cross-country running, the discipline of equestrian sports or the exhilaration of tennis.
Our 54 acres of beautiful grounds offer an enviable range of sporting facilities. Kilgraston is the only school in Scotland with equestrian facilities on campus, giving girls the unique ability to ride regularly, on-site, as an extra-curricular activity. We have invested in an International sized all-weather hockey astroturf pitch, eight floodlit all-weather tennis courts, extensive playing fields, a superb sports hall, fitness suite and climbing wall, and a new 25m indoor swimming pool complex.
We support 50 different activities giving the girls exceptional choice and a wealth of opportunities. These include activities that raise social awareness. This has included, for example, experiencing the aftermath of global catastrophes such as the Nepal earthquake and directly supporting the work of NGOs.
Social awareness activities for girls across all age groups also include looking at the importance of enterprise and developing an understanding of ethical and fair trade business practices.
Participation in competitive sport, building on the expertise of the School’s excellent sports coaches, is also a particularly key element of the clubs and activities programme.
Kilgraston has Open Days throughout the Year or we are always happy to show families around our stunning School so please contact us to arrange a visit.
