Parent testimonial

"We are awestruck by the strong ethos towards empowering girls to try their hand at anything and the large number of extra-curricular school activities available and the strong emphasis on a well-rounded education. Everyone we have interacted with from Trish to Harry the bus driver have been kind and caring and we are in no doubt that sending our daughter to Kilgraston was the best decision we have made for her future."

Kilgraston Junior Years pupil represents Scotland

Head over heels success


Huge congratulations to Kilgraston Junior Years pupil, Melissa A, who represented Scotland on Saturday 8 June at the National Regional Tumble finals in the Birmingham Arena.

Despite badly turning her ankle only eleven days beforehand (also the night before she appeared as ‘Scarecrow’ in the School’s end-of-term production, The Wizard of Oz) and undergoing intensive physiotherapy, Melissa was determined to take part, demonstrating incredible determination and grit!

The sport of Tumbling is a gymnastics sporting discipline. Skills of artistic gymnastics, combined with those of trampolining, are needed. Frequently the sport is performed on a 25-meter-long spring track. Originally, tumbling was for entertainment purposes only, but it has now progressed to a fully recognised, codified, regulated and judged sport using standardised special acrobatic equipment.

Director of Sport at Kilgraston, Pauline Stott MBE, said: “This is a terrific achievement for Melissa, especially considering she has only been competing in the sport for such a short time; to have risen so far up the ranks, in addition to combining it with her equestrian pursuits, is of great credit to her.”

Competing in the 11-12 age group level 2 section, Melissa qualified for the competition in March when she won a silver medal in Perth. Only silver and gold winners qualified for National Regional Championships.

There were 24 in her round at the weekend; she scored 77.87 coming 19th, with the winner achieving 81.62 – a tight competition indeed.

Very well done from all at Kilgraston School.
