ALL ROUND SUPPORT
Our pupils have the opportunity to benefit from a high standard of education, an all-round learning environment, and extra-curricular activities set in the stunning, rural Perthshire countryside.
At Ardvreck, we aim to uncover the gem within each pupil. We provide the perfect environment in which pupils can thrive, becoming ‘can-do’ pupils who excel in future education.
The boarding experience promotes initiative and helps to develop leadership skills. We encourage all children to embrace and enjoy the benefits boarding can offer, with day pupils having the opportunity to make the transition to boarding if they desire.
Our holistic approach to boarding helps children to settle easily and quickly, and fully prepares them for their transition to senior school. Weekends are packed with activities and events.
Parents are an important part of the boarding experience and are encouraged to telephone and email as well as to visit the school regularly to watch matches and school plays and to take part in form workshops and parent/teacher meetings.
At Ardvreck we see communication as vitally important and the children will be encouraged to contact home regularly to update their families on all that they have achieved and enjoyed. All the housestaff are easily contactable by phone or by email and will be in touch regularly with parents.
The communication between the Dalvreck staff is also very important and weekly meetings, along with less formal more frequent meetings, will guarantee that each and every child in the boarding community is well cared for and nurtured. The soft skills of leadership, teamwork, empathy, cross cultural understanding, social ease and self-belief will blossom, and, of course, boarders will learn the all-important skill of where to hide their illegal tuck!
At Ardvreck we nurture and nourish our children. They are provided with a healthy balanced diet, freshly prepared in our school’s kitchen. We source as much of our produce as locally as possible and regularly change our menu to include seasonal recipes.
