The Leading Prep School in Perthshire

Ardvreck is widely regarded as the busiest preparatory school in Scotland. Our extensive academic and extra-curricular programme empowers all of our pupils to discover their talents and interests in an all-round learning environment.

The academic structure at Ardvreck has been designed to ensure that pupils achieve their full potential. This structure ensures that the learning needs of each individual are met and that the children constantly strive to outperform their own expectations.

An Exceptional Environment for Learning

The day and boarding learning environments at Ardvreck are set amidst beautiful Perthshire countryside. Children play and explore in the dams and dens and extensive green areas, allowing them to thrive in a healthy environment surrounded by nature that encourages them to make the most of their precious childhood years.

Ardvreck ensures that all children are well prepared for the next stage of education and many of its former pupils have been selected as leaders within their senior schools.

Ardvreck is the embodiment of a rigorous ‘all-round education’. It ensures that all of its pupils excel and contribute in academic, sporting and cultural spheres. Equally, Ardvreck teaches core values of patience, justice, obedience and unselfishness. By the time that they leave the school, all our pupils become “can do” adolescents, who have developed a wide understanding of both leadership and responsibility.

A Warm Community and Nurturing Family

At our small and cosy school all children are valued as individuals, and we work hard to ensure that all of our pupils’ needs are met. Unlike larger schools, we are able to adopt a compassionate approach to the needs, interests and academic enthusiasm of each individual child; making Ardvreck school feel like a home away from home. Children feel happy, loved, valued and nurtured at Ardvreck School.
