Head PhotoKilgraston is a dynamic school. It is distinctive and remarkable and offers a world-class education that is both academic and personal. Set in 54 acres of stunning Scottish parkland in Perthshire, Kilgraston offers girls security and space to grow and develop while providing a tranquil and gentle-paced environment for the girls to concentrate without distraction.

Academic:

In November 2016, Kilgraston was named 'top performing independent school for Advanced Highers' by best-schools.co.uk. This comes after Kilgraston girls achieved an outstanding set of results in August 2016. At Advanced Higher 90.5% of grades were A-B against a national average of 59.3%, 36% of girls are now studying a STEM undergraduate course and 100% of girls were accepted into their choice of university. Kilgraston has an exceptional reputation for girls gaining entry into top Scottish universities. In 2016, over 70% of girls went on to study at universities in Scotland.

Boarding:

Kilgraston offers a happy and safe boarding community from the age of 8 and outstanding pastoral care is provided by each of the Housemistresses on the 4 boarding houses, which are connected to the main school, allowing access to the exceptional facilities. The Housemistresses and their assistants work closely with tutors to put pastoral care at the heart of the School, whilst older girls act as big sisters to the younger girls. The girls have an active social calendar with sports fixtures, musical performances, excursions and many socials with partner schools.

Clubs and Activities

Kilgraston's sporting provision is headed by Pauline Stott MBE, the Director of Sport and former double Olympian. Pauline is a real role model to the girls, and is a key element to the success on the sports fields. Kilgraston's 54 acres offers an enviable range of sporting facilities including an international sized all-weather hockey astroturf, sports hall, tennis courts, fitness room, equestrian centre and a 25m indoor swimming pool. Kilgraston currently has girls representing Scotland in Hockey and Netball.

Music is a key part of the Kilgraston community, which is reflected in the busy calendar of events throughout the year including the annual Christmas Concert. Girls represent the school in regional and national orchestras and choirs. In Drama, pupils take the LAMDA examinations and partake in plays, musicals and house drama competitions. The Art Department are renowned for their outstanding creativity and artwork, in which girls win top art awards at competitions across Scotland.

Kilgraston also offers over 50 additional clubs and activities.
