Steeped in Ardvreck’s ethos that classrooms don’t need walls, children in Little Ardvreck develop a sense of adventure and responsibility. Our varied outdoor timetable includes regular Forest School sessions, with campfires and nature exploration featuring regularly on our weekly timetable.
Little Ardvreck recently introduced the Go MTB scheme where every child has access to mountain bike training from beginner to skilled level. Outdoor learning mornings provide many adventures including: canoeing; low ropes; climbing and journeying, all allow the children to challenge themselves, work together and build resilience and determination.
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.
Our After School Club runs every weekday until 6pm with as many of the activities as possible being undertaken outside. Afternoon snacks are the order of the day as the school day ends and a less formal and spontaneous approach allows the children to wind down after a busy day.
