Kilgraston School’s Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths record highlighted


STEM subjects at Kilgraston are particularly strong and this fact has been widely noticed with the Boarding Schools’ Association magazine (pages 60, 61 & 63) being the latest publication to highlight our record.

We’d like to think that we are always opening-up doors at Kilgraston. Nestled in the Perthshire foothills, our all-girls’ school is quietly shaking up the sector’s approach to STEM subjects. Summer 2018 saw an impressive 66% of our Upper Sixth leaving to take-up undergraduate STEM places. This represented a 22% year-on-year increase and, against the national average of less than 25% of female students graduating in STEM subjects, demonstrates a very healthy interest in the sector.

“Girls are just as excited by developments in science and engineering as boys,” said renowned physicist, Dr Jessica Wade, a leading-light at Imperial College London. We couldn’t agree more!
