Ardvreck School, known for its academic and adventurous education, will feature in the official commemorative album for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Scottish school, nestled in the Perthshire countryside, was selected by St James’s House to feature alongside a select number of outstanding individuals and organisations from across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth for its approach to outdoor education and enthusiasm for nurturing a love for the environment.
Ali Kinge, Ardvreck School’s Headmistress, said: “To be featured in the only official book published for the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, is an honour. We are delighted to have been recognised as a forward-thinking prep school that paves the way for an academic and adventurous education.”
She continues: “We are very proud to be the only British prep school featured in such a timeless and prestigious publication.”
Ardvreck School is an independent boarding and day preparatory school for boys and girls aged 3–13. Pupils at Ardvreck are encouraged to cast their nets wide, to have big dreams and to be ambitious. The children have access to acres of outdoor space for exciting forest learning, sport and play; these factors make the curriculum so creative and thrilling that young minds can’t help but have a tenacious thirst for learning.
The Scottish wilderness is the greatest of all educators – and that’s certainly saying something given that Ardvreck’s actual team of terrific teachers is second to none. Their pupils are happy, well-rounded and fulfilled children who are full of hope and ambition for their futures. What is most remarkable, though, is that each and every one of them is completely at ease in his, or her, own skin. Through the challenges and situations to which they have been exposed, be it scrambling up a cliff, swimming in a loch, helping in the community or chatting to royalty, every child is equipped with the skills and the confidence to feel unperturbed by any situation.
Featuring more than 250 photographs of Her Majesty from throughout her life, the book provides insight to a lifetime of leadership. Providing a unique window into Her Majesty’s decades of service and one of the most extraordinary lives of this or any other era.
