Kil­gras­ton girls can be the lead­ers of to­mor­row

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS -

Of­fer­ing day and board­ing ed­u­ca­tion, 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 in­ter­est 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 over 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, all­weather astro-turf pitches and Scot­land’s only school eques­trian cen­tre.

Hav­ing been named ‘top per­form­ing in­de­pen­dent school for Ad­vanced Highers’ by in 2015, Kil­gras­ton girls rou­tinely achieve out­stand­ing sets of re­sults.

At Ad­vanced Higher, 90.5 per cent of grades were A-B against a national av­er­age of 59.3 per cent.

In 2018, 64 per cent of girls are ap­ply­ing to study a STEM un­der­grad­u­ate course and in 2017 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.

When Kil­gras­ton girls leave us to go on to fur­ther stud­ies, we are cer­tain that they will con­tinue to chan­nel their tal­ents and be­come lead­ers for to­mor­row.

Our girls leave Kil­gras­ton with an em­bed­ded sense of in­di­vid­u­al­ism, con­fi­dence, hu­mil­ity and a de­sire to achieve the very best she can, in her own cho­sen field. Our girls don’t com­pro­mise on suc­cess, they in­spire it.

You are in­vited to join us at our Open Day on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 3 2018, from 11am – 2pm.

The staff and pupils would be de­lighted to meet you and show you our out­stand­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

Please do let us know you are com­ing so that we can have your per­son­alised wel­come pack ready for your ar­rival.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or to book a visit, please con­tact Mrs Amanda John­stone: ad­mis­[email protected]­gras­ | 01738 815523
