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 dif­fer­ent cul­tures, and em­pha­sis­ing our per­sonal re­spon­si­bil­ity as global cit­i­zens are vi­tal. As such, a Kil­gras­ton girl ben­e­fits from a wealth of op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­tend and en­rich her ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence. We of­fer 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. Kil­gras­ton’s first open day of 2017 is on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 4 be­tween 11am and 2pm. Fam­i­lies are in­vited to join us, meet staff and pupils and tour our out­stand­ing fa­cil­i­ties.
