Kilgraston attends Scotland’s Boarding Schools event
Kilgraston is delighted to be part of the first ever Scotland’s Boarding Schools event, which is taking place virtually Saturday 22nd May.
At the event 14 leading Scottish boarding schools will come together to showcase the range and quality of boarding schools in Scotland. They offer an enviable range of outdoor pursuits with the incredible Scottish landscape always playing a part.
Families will have the opportunity to meet with some of Kilgraston’s senior team including our Headmistress, Mrs Dorothy MacGinty, and our Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Deirdre McCormick.
The past 15 months has seen a rise in demand for Scottish boarding schools, particularly from London and city-based families.
Almost 6000 families from London alone have used the Scotland’s Boarding Schools and Scottish Council for Independent Schools websites to research boarding schools in Scotland over the past year.
Admissions teams say interest seems to be driven by the effects of lock-down and parents’ desire for their children to grow up in with access to wide open spaces.
Director of the Scottish Council of Independent Schools, John Edward, said:
“During lock-down many families were cooped up together in major cities like London and dreamed of an idyllic childhood with easy access to wide open spaces and a safe environment. That is something that Scotland has in spades and our members are seeing an increase in inquiries from city-based families as a result.”
Kilgraston looks forward to meeting with families at the event.
