The School requires all parents resident abroad to appoint a guardian.

Day Pupil’s overnight stay and flexible boarding (where space allows) is available.

There are many benefits to boarding including introducing the girls to a whole new world of social and cultural opportunities and so we encourage day girls to try boarding for an occasional night or more regularly for 2, 3, 4 nights per week if preferred.

In the event that provisional notice is given this is only valid for the term in which it is given. In the event that a full term’s notice of withdrawal is not received a full term’s fees in lieu of notice will be due and payable at the rate that would have applied had the pupil attended school.

Fees must be paid in full by the first day of each term. Please see here for Kilgraston’s fee payment terms 2021 – 2022.
