Within the Kilgraston Junior Years we are incredibly fortunate to be able to follow our own ‘Kilgraston Curriculum’. We use the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence as our starting point; however, we then take the very best from current educational practice from anywhere in the world and tailor it.
Kilgraston is in a stunning setting so we focus on outdoor experiences in every year group. As such we are working towards our ‘Green Tree School Award’. We also place an emphasis on Ethical Enterprise activities, with every girl in the Junior School running their own business and taking part in Fairtrade sales as part of our ‘Fairtrade Schools Award’. In everything we do our Sacred Heart Ethos plays a huge part and the Sacred Heart Goals are related to all academic, social and enterprising activities.
We have created a challenging and inspiring curriculum where the children are encouraged to work on their own and in small groups to question, explore, enquire and communicate. We want our pupils to become independent life-long learners; who are fully prepared for the Senior School and beyond.
