Vision, Aims and Ethos
Ardvreck is a forward thinking, co-educational, independent, boarding and day prep school serving Scotland, the rest of the UK and the wider international market. We prepare children for places at all the UK’s public schools, by giving them a broad, inspiring and confidence building education.
An individual approach
Ardvreck is a happy and caring school in which all children are given 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. They need the warmth and security which allows them to develop their own special talents and personalities. Most importantly, we have developed many ways which allows us to listen to the needs and aspirations of the children.
We help to give children confidence so that they can make important contributions to many areas of school life. We are a happy school where pupils are able to attain high academic standards whilst feeling valued and encouraged as an individual.
We encourage individuality and initiative and help children to develop the attributes and values of being courteous, responsible, pro-active and engaging.
During their time at school, each child is encouraged to take on a leadership role and this enables the individual to have a deeper and richer understanding of a sense of service. We believe in helping children overcome difficult obstacles or setbacks so that they can become a fuller person and be more prepared for some of the challenges that lie ahead.
