 Principal's Welcome


Welcome to Craigholme School — the only independent school in the west of Scotland that caters exclusively for five to eighteen year-old girls, as well as a co-educational nursery for girls and boys aged three to five years old. 


Here at Craigholme School we aim to deliver a special kind of education for girls, which allows them to be themselves and explore what is best for them, whilst leading to greater academic achievement and personal fulfillment. 

I am proud of the warm, compassionate and caring environment of Craigholme School and the positive ethos and personal approach within the school, where individual needs are catered for, achievement is celebrated and learning is valued and enjoyed. 

My role at Craigholme School is to give every girl the opportunity to realise her potential and to be her best.  Our girls know that if they work hard and use their talents then they can achieve.  I firmly believe that the only barriers to achievement are the ones we create ourselves and Craigholme aims to build the confidence and resilience within our girls to overcome all barriers before them and to succeed in all aspects of their lives in order to achieve their goals and to make a meaningful contribution to society.

At Craigholme we place an emphasis on respect for each other and working together to achieve our goals.  We have an ethos of achievement and a desire to fully realise our potential.  My challenge to every girl is for her to realise her potential and everyone in the Craigholme community is intent on helping every girl to be her best.

Welcome to our School!

Head Girl's Welcome 

My time at Craigholme School has made me more confident and independent as well as giving me the essential skills I will need for University.  The School offers numerous opportunities, ensuring that there is something for every pupil, whether they enjoy participating in sports or shining on stage.  Public speaking has been something that I have thoroughly enjoyed, especially the opportunity to compete against other schools.  I have also participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, which has given me the chance to volunteer and to help my local community as well as taking part in expeditions.

Craigholme School has helped me overcome hurdles and supported me throughout my education.  Whenever I need a helping hand, the teachers are always there to support me, along with my friends in my year group, who never fail to put a smile on my face!
