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.

Happy kids!

Adventure Friday followed by our first Barvick - that was one smiley girl at pick up 😀. She will sleep well tonight!

This evening some of our boarders enjoyed a stimulating Magic Lantern Lecture delivered from Mallorca by Richard O’Connor (aka Mrs Erdal’s brother) who is the co-founder of Chocolateandlove. Richard gave a fascinating insight into how to start a small business, the importance of fairtrade and the intricacies of making top quality chocolate. The ensuing chocolate tasting workshop went down a treat: look; smell; make two chews and allow to melt in the mouth. 😋 🤤 #chocolateandlove #fairtrade #galumptuous #onlyatardvrecksome
Today, Forms 1 and 2 got to take part in another thrilling Adventure Friday at Willowgate Activity Centre. Not a bad way to end the week! #adventureschool #onlyatardvreck
