Getting to Ardvreck School
We have a fleet of modern vehicles for transporting our pupils. While the buses are used for the morning and evening school runs, during the day they are utilised for taking pupils on trips, challenges and adventures.
Safety is of the utmost importance to Ardvreck and all drivers, who transport pupils, are required to undertake a MiDAS driving assessment and the majority of Ardvreck staff hold a current MiDAS certificate. All have a MiDAS driving assessment before using any school vehicle.
For our day pupils, we are continually looking at routes which will assist parents with the daily school run. We also assist our boarding pupils by organising our transport to train stations and airports for going home at exeat, half term or at holidays.
At present we operate three daily morning routes:
Perth, Bankfoot & Dunkeld
Dunkeld is the historic focus for the east of our daily catchment area. Starting from Inveralmond, in Perth, the route travels up the A9 to Bankfoot before reaching the communities of Birnham and Dunkeld. This route proves very popular since it provides both a morning collection and an evening drop off service.
Many of our families live in the Aberfeldy area and this provides an excellent hub for the bus to stop to transport pupils to Ardvreck. At present this route has a return journey at the closing time for our Pre Prep department. The return journey also extends to Dunkeld to assist our younger pupils who live to the east of the area.
Transporting families from Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Dunblane, Braco, Blackford, Dunning and Auchterarder.
Other routes, such as one from Comrie, are being considered. If this, or any other route, would assist you with the school run, please contact the school office to register your interest.
At exeat, half term and end of term the school can arrange transport to airports, railway and bus stations. Many parents find this service extremely useful. If you are wishing to utilise this service please liaise with the school office regarding the station and the time of the bus, plane or train. This will enable the office to advise you as to whether or not our service will connect with your main transport.
A nominal charge to cover costs will be made for the use of the transport service.
