One of the places that returning Old Ardvreckians ask to see is the trophy cabinet and the chance to see their name on the winning cup when they ran, jumped or threw their way onto the podium at Sports Day.
We now have more children and more Sports Day events and to that end we are on the lookout for eight more cups to be used on Sports Day to ensure that all our boys and girls have the chance to remember that winning moment and to join their illustrious forebears in the trophy cabinet. If you have a suitable cup (used or new) that you would like to donate to the School them please message us or email  No heirlooms or plastic please!
Happy Birthday to Christopher Hutchinson who is 100 years old today.  Christopher was at Ardvreck from 1932-1936 and came to visit us recently with his family.  We wish him a very, very happy day.  To find out more about Christopher's time at Ardvreck please visit
Ardvreckians have many attributes and one of them is modesty.  Which is why it has only just come to our attention that Ollie Carmichael (OA99-04) was awarded an MBE in the military division of the New Year's Honours List.  We are thrilled to hear the news and send Ollie many congratulations from all at Ardvreck.  After Ardvreck, Ollie attended Glenalmond College, where he was Captain of Coll, and then King’s College London where he achieved a First Class Honours degree.  He is currently serving in the Scots Guards.
We always relish visits from our Old Ardvreckians but recently we had a very special visitor.  Mr Francis Finlay (OA55) came over from New York to see his prep school and to see the Finlay Hall for which he was a major benefactor. The Finlay Hall has been an intrinsic part of Ardvreck life for 22 years and not just as a Sports Hall.  It has ‘hosted’ Spring Flings, judo competitions, Friends of Ardvreck Quiz Nights, Speech Day, Common Entrance exams to name but a few.  We are very grateful to Mr Finlay and all those who donated to the building of the Hall at the turn of the century.
We are delighted to celebrate more Old Ardvreckian rugby success by congratulating Seb Stephen and Finn Spurway (both OA18) who recently played for Caledonia U17 team in the FOSROC Scottish Rugby Regional Championship Finals.  More up and coming OA rugby stars of the future!
