WELCOME FROM THE HEADMISTRESS

Welcome to Ardvreck School’s website. Our extraordinary “school on the hill” is a unique community with an unmatched spirit of achievement and sense of educational adventure. Our inspirational teachers and staff body are committed to making every child become altruistic, curious, and courageous. Our pupils are encouraged to cast their nets wide, to have big dreams and be ambitious, all the while surrounded by a nurturing environment and a curriculum so creative and thrilling young minds cannot help but have a tenacious thirst for learning.

Words and photographs are simply not enough to convey the vitality and enthusiasm that are the hallmark of Ardvreck, and I would urge you to arrange a visit to experience the school at first hand. I can guarantee a very warm welcome.

A UNIQUE EDUCATION

Ardvreck’s magnificent location inspires our mantra that not all classrooms have walls; every child has the privilege of learning life lessons outside. Our nature-inspired Nursery fully embraces the Forest School principles and as the pupils move up the school, our outstanding outdoor pursuits activity programme, which is second to none, encourages the development of a deep-rooted appreciation of nature and adaptability in our pupils.

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure pupils achieve their full potential. This structure ensures that the learning needs of each individual are met and that the children constantly strive to outperform their own expectations both inside and outside of the classroom.

At Ardvreck, we ensure that all children are well prepared for the next stage of education, and many of its former pupils have been selected as leaders within their senior schools.

It was a sunny start back in Art, for some of our younger pupils in school this week.  Mrs Cashman’s class created squidgy suns, spongy moons, planets bursting with colour and pulled their best ‘landed in space face’ for their next lesson, while Form 1 returned to put up their Spring term display of fabulous flowers from lockdown learning and then experiment with mark making using ink and feathers...some drawing and some keenly practising their handwriting! #cooltobebackatschool #sunnydays #themoonismadeofcheese #spaceface #learningaboutcolour #inkyardventures #goodbyegooglemeet #springisintheair #ardvreckart
Our Nursery children had an exceptional first week in their brand new Nursery building. They explored all the new toys including home corner, arts and crafts, and even had time to make an indoor Zen Den. The children also enjoyed being back in the swimming pool and loved their music lesson out on the deck.  #littleadventurers #nursery #elc #crieff #onlyatardvreck

Absolutely fantastic well done 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Pupils in Little Ardvreck are very happy to be back at school! Today they enjoyed an outdoor lesson where they learned how to whittle sticks in preparation for roasting marshmallows. A delicious end to a school day!

Fabulous photograph of a fabulous school. Very happy memories when my daughter Lucy Powell was there!

Fantastic! ;-)

This brings back so many memories of our time there from 1984 to 2000. Must come back for a visit to see how things have changed.

Awesome pic!
