Number 1 for Advanced Highers
It has been a week of celebrations at Kilgraston School, with the news that Kilgraston has been named the ’Number one independent school for Advanced Highers 2016’ by best-schools.co.uk and Education Advisers.
This is a wonderful achievement for the girls and staff, who have already received a great deal of recognition for the outstanding achievements they received in August. This year, the girls recorded an exceptional 65.5% A grades against a national average of 33.5% and 90.5% A-B against a national average of 59.3%. These results have once again, positioned Kilgraston as a leading independent school in Scotland. 100% of girls were accepted into their choice of university and 36% of girls are now studying a STEM undergraduate course.
Kilgraston School has once again had an outstanding year with 70% of leavers successfully gaining entry into top Scottish universities including St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
We are looking forward to Best-Schools.co.uk visiting us in 2017 to present us with our award.Published: January 19 2017
