THE AULD ALLIANCE
Each year we provide a warm welcome to a number of children from across France for English language immersion. Children aged 7 to 13 have the option to join us for a summer term, a full academic year or for even longer!
Our French visitors quickly become part of the Ardvreck Family. They enjoy all academic lessons, outdoor pursuits and sporting activities and are supported on an individual basis with one-to-one language tuition. Our French pupils embrace life at Ardvreck and make long lasting friendships with their Scottish peers.
From 1 January 2021, European pupils who want to attend Ardvreck can stay in the UK as a student for up to 6 months without a visa. You will need to apply for a Short-term Study Visa if your child will be in the UK for more than 6 months and up to 11 months. You will need a Child Student visa if you want your child to attend Ardvreck for more than a year. (A Child Student visa lasts for six years so they can come back to visit again).
