An exciting opportunity in Perthshire.

New Head required for April or August 2022

Kilgraston School

Following the retirement of Dorothy MacGinty after seven years of inspirational service, the governors of Kilgraston School are seeking a new Head from April or August 2022.

Kilgraston is a day and boarding school for around 270 children, co-educational from 5 to 12and girls only from 12 to 18.

Located in an idyllic, tranquil but easily- reached setting a few miles south of Perth, Kilgraston is a thriving, busy and friendly school, where pupils are valued for who they are as individuals. Pupils are educated to the highest standards, giving them the knowledge, skills and aspiration to succeed to the best of their abilities in a fast-changing world.

With a strong and purposeful approach based on the Catholic faith, Kilgraston provides a first-class, Scottish academic education, as evidenced by our outstanding results, combined with excellent co-curricular and pastoral provision that ensures girls leave the school as accomplished young women who attend excellent universities across the UK and overseas and go on to have very successful careers.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced educational leader to take the School to its next stage of development. A current Head or a successful Senior Leader, the ideal candidate will have the strategic vision, drive and energy to shape a school that adheres to its traditions yet is outward facing and modern in its outlook.
