Kilgraston School

Kilgraston is a world class boarding and day school, offering education for boys and girls from five to twelve and girls only from twelve to eighteen. We have an enviable record of academic achievement at the highest levels.

Our ambition for each child is to stimulate and develop individual character and personality. Our teaching is rich in resources and inspires and challenges our pupils to aim at the highest level and enables them to attain it.

Our curriculum is broad, and our approach to intellectual development is inclusive and supportive of every child from Reception to Sixth Form. 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.

Our aim is straightforward: each pupil will leave us with the potential to be the best they can be.

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.
