AFTER ARDVRECK

Since 2018, over thirty scholarships have been awarded to Ardvreck pupils to Senior schools of their choice. Our well-rounded, confident and altruistic pupils are coveted by senior schools across the UK.

Pupils have been offered places to Senior school’s across the UK and beyond including Ampleforth, Eton, Fettes, Glenalmond, Gordonstoun, Harrow, Kilgraston, King’s Canterbury, Malvern, Marlborough, Merchiston, Milton Abbey, Oundle, Queen Margaret’s York, Radley, Rugby, Sedbergh, Sherborne, Shrewsbury, St Mary’s Ascot, St Mary’s Calne, St Mary’s Wantage, Stowe, Strathallan, Uppingham and Winchester.

It is a real pleasure to have Ardvreckians in our midst at Merchiston. More often than not, they are talented young men within and outwith the classroom. They make the most of their talents and they are keen to discover and develop new talents. They are always whole-hearted and willing to give everything a real ‘go’. In our experience, Ardvreckians prove to be grounded individuals who are ‘good’ people. Ultimately, this really matters!

FRIENDS OF ARDVRECK

As the old African proverb goes “It takes a village to raise a child” and the Friends of Ardvreck (FOA) are the community of parents, grandparents, guardians, brothers and sisters who are attached to each child at Ardvreck School.

They are represented by a committee of parents who meet a couple of times a term to dream up exciting events to raise money for all the extra things which make this school so unique. More importantly, it is at these events parents get a chance to meet the friends of their children and experience a little bit of the fun that makes this school so magic.
