About Kilgraston School
Kilgraston is a leading independent boarding and day school catering for 330 girls from 4 to 18 years. It is located in 54 acres of stunning parkland in Bridge of Earn, three miles from the centre of Perth. The school has an outstanding record of academic achievement.
With high pupil numbers, Kilgraston is investing for the future. In recent years the school has undertaken an impressive development programme. New additions to the school include: a bistro style dining-room, a 150 seat theatre, major refurbishment of boarding accommodation, a new sports pavilion and a 25m indoor swimming pool complex. The school has also introduced hockey, tennis and swimming academies to further enhance the extensive range of extracurricular activities. Our latest developments are a new Science Centre and Sixth Form Centre, both completed in summer 2013.
Kilgraston is a Catholic school with an ecumenical tradition and, as a member of the international network of Sacred Heart Schools, has a strong sense of community which is maintained through the hard work of every member. The School has traditionally attracted pupils from around the world with around 20% of pupils coming from countries such as Mexico, Spain, Germany and China.
Kilgraston is guided by the principles of the Sacred Heart:
- Faith relevant in the world today
- Personal growth
- A deep respect for intellectual values
- Social awareness
The Senior School classrooms, including the bespoke music rooms and fully updated ICT facilities, sit alongside the elegant Georgian mansion, which is at the heart of the campus. High standard boarding accommodation, interconnected to the main building, is provided for girls from the age of 8 to 18 and the girls stay in their year groups with residential staff in each boarding area. Currently boarding is thriving with over 130 boarders in the school.
The most recent Care Inspectorate report praised the excellent standard of the pastoral care -
an achievement staff and pupils are rightly proud of.
