Visitors say that the school ‘feels different’. And it is. Kilgraston School’s founding traditions as part of the Sacred Heart Network reinforce their values as does their Scottish education heritage. Trust, respect, integrity and responsibility lie at the heart of the community and underpin the academic achievements of each of the students.
The ambition for each girl is to stimulate and develop her individual character and personality. The school’s teaching is rich in resources, with highly effective use of Information Technology in the classroom, including the use of iPads for every girl. Kilgraston School’s teaching inspires and challenges the girls to aim at the highest level, and enables them to attain it. The school believe there should be no limit on either personal or professional ambitions.
Each girl is encouraged to grow, learn and mature in an atmosphere of freedom and opportunity. Each is a key member of the ‘Kilgraston Family’.
The girls achieve all they are capable of. Each will leave Kilgraston School with the potential to go on to take their place as a professional, academic or business leader of tomorrow; perhaps all three if that’s their choice.
Kilgraston attracts students from every corner of the world. With over twelve different nationalities represented at the school, it is genuinely exciting, stimulating and enlightening to be part of such a rich cultural mix. The international students are a huge part of the Kilgraston community and benefit from mixing with so many different nationalities.
Boarding at Kilgraston School
Boarding is a very popular choice even for girls whose families live within commuting distance of the School. The boarding community plays a vital role in maintaining the vibrancy and pulse of the school and creates new opportunities for a wealth of cross-curricular links with other schools and organisations.
The girls have an active social calendar and enjoy many events from ‘getting to know you’ evenings to Highland Balls with the brother school, Merchiston. Boarders are also involved in many volunteering activities within the local community.
A boarder at Kilgraston School will experience a whole new world of social and cultural opportunities contributing to a broad new dimension to her Kilgraston education ‘experience’.
