Your guide to Independent schools

Kilgraston School is a leading boarding and day school for girls aged five to 18.

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 per cent of grades were A-B against a national average of 59.3 per cent, 36 per cent of girls are now studying a STEM undergraduate course and 100 per cent 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 per cent of girls went on to study at universities in Scotland, including St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Kilgraston has something to inspire every young woman. We are a school with traditional values but with a modern and forward-looking perspective on education. Education is not just about exam success – developing interests and talents, nurturing an understanding of di~ erent cultures, and emphasising our personal responsibility as global citizens are vital. As such, a Kilgraston girl bene˚ ts from a wealth of opportunities to extend and enrich her educational experience. We o~ er more than 50 extra-curricular activities, and enjoy modern, state-of-the-art facilities including a science centre, sixth form study centre, excellent boarding accommodation, 25m swimming pool, all-weather astro-turf pitches and Scotland’s only school equestrian centre.
