Many of our pupils choose to flexi-board as they want to take full advantage of evening extra-curricular activities or simply want to stay with their friends for longer. Whatever the reason, we are happy to assist.

Flexi-boarding is the helping hand to every family team. The part-time boarding option works well for parents who may have to take a work trip or work away from home a few days a week. All day pupils have the option of staying for Enid Blyton-esque sleepovers from one night to four night packages or on an ad hoc basis.

Part-Time Boarding

As a flexi boarder the children can expect to enjoy more time to play and interact with their friends. The children will continue to have a plethora of well trained attentive professionals to care for them, reinforcing the sense of family while encouraging the individuals to be independent.

Many of our pupils become flexi-boarders to benefit from our sector leading outdoor provision, together with the exciting weekend and evening activities. These include movie nights, games, talks, walks, and thrilling adventures up trees or hills or down rivers, gorges or caves as well as making time for chatting and playing and enjoying their down time. Why waste time in a car or on a bus coming to school when staying at Dalvreck with friends is such fun?


Flexi-boarding at Ardvreck has become even more exciting as we have recently refurbished and rebranded the main school boarding house as Dalvreck House. The 19th century building has been designed with a contemporary feel to create our fun and modern boarding house filled with home comforts, taking into account your children’s suggestions and needs.

Dalvreck House accommodates up to 70 boarders on any given night which creates a fun and buzzing atmosphere. Every flexi-boarder has their own dedicated bed space that is homely and cosy, and decorated with their personal effects.

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.


If you would like to learn more about boarding at Ardvreck, we can arrange for some of our current boarding families to share their experiences. We aim to ensure that you and your child are fully informed, confident and excited about the boarding experience before enrolment.
