Kilgraston is a leading Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 5 – 18.
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, all-weather astro-turf pitches and Scotland’s only school equestrian centre.

In 2018, 64% of girls are applying to study a STEM undergraduate course and in 2017 100% of girls were accepted into their choice of university. Kilgraston has an exceptional reputation for girls gaining entry into top UK universities.
