Day children are integral members of the Ardvreck community. They enjoy full access to all school facilities and extra-curricular activities and benefit from supportive staff, pastoral care and wholesome food from the in-house catering staff. Lunch and all snacks are provided as well as supper for those staying on to enjoy our wide range of extra-curricular activities.

Form tutors oversee the pastoral care and ensure timely and appropriate communication is maintained between the day pupil, parents and School. This approach ensures that day pupils benefit from the 24/7 care that is an intrinsic part of a boarding prep school.


We have a fleet of modern vehicles for transporting our day pupils. While the buses are used for the morning and evening school runs, during the day they are used for taking pupils on trips, challenges and adventures.

We currently have four routes established to assist parents with the school run which include Perth; Bankfoot; Dunkeld; Aberfeldy; Auchterarder; Dunblane and Comrie.


Our day pupils have the option to flexi-board, and many choose to do so. In order to take advantage of evening extra-curricular activities and weekend opportunities available to boarding pupils, children can become flexi-boarders or convert to full boarding later in their Ardvreck career. Flexi-Boarding is offered to help with such a transition, and is available for Enid Blyton-esque sleepovers for when you need them.

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.
