OUR VISION

Ardvreck is a forward-thinking, co-educational, independent, boarding and day prep school serving Scotland, the rest of the UK and international families. We prepare children for places at all the UK’s public senior schools, by giving them a broad, inspiring and confidence-building education. While the children excel academically, they are also challenged with countless adventures and experience an authentic childhood.

FAMILY ETHOS

A Unique Learning Journey

Ardvreck is a joyful and caring school which gives all children a wide range of opportunities to develop their full potential whilst carefully nurturing their self-belief and confidence.

We give each child time and space, respect and encouragement. At Ardvreck, we understand that they need the warmth and security which allow them to develop their own special talents and personalities. Most importantly, we have developed many ways in which to listen to the needs and aspirations of the children.
Our small school provides a unique, safe space for children to begin to discover who they are and how they best learn.

We endeavour to give children confidence so that they can make important contributions to many areas of school life and beyond the school gates. We are a relaxed yet adventurous school where pupils are able to attain high academic standards whilst feeling valued and encouraged as individuals. During their time at Ardvreck, children are encouraged to take on a leadership role developing their sense of self and awareness of the needs of others. We believe in teaching children how to manage obstacles or setbacks positively and to be more prepared for some of the challenges that lie ahead.

PASTORAL

Ardvreck is renowned for its high standard of pastoral care and welfare for both day and boarding pupils.

All our pupils enjoy a warm, caring and nurturing environment. We take the utmost care of all our children with an unbelievable team of staff. They are movers and shakers, optimists, can doers, smilers and who all care, beyond belief, about the education and wellbeing of every single child in our school.
House staff play a key role in the pastoral life of Ardvreck and are always available to advise and support the children and their parents.
