What the Good Schools Guide says..
Not really a first-time buyer school and really quite Scottish. Parents 'a close-knit group of families', with pupils 'tending to remain friends well into middle age' and beyond. Rapid changes at the top......
What the school says...
The academically rigorous teaching and learning environment ensures that our pupils move on to a wide range of schools north and south of the border. Significantly our pupils continue to gain an array of top academic scholarships, music and all-rounder awards.
The high quality of our boarding and day provision provides opportunities for all pupils to take part in many activities. These include public speaking, prestigious competitions in English, mathematics and science, outdoor pursuits, skiing, chess and debating. Day and boarding pupils also have the opportunity to hone their skills in our indoor shooting range.
The expressive arts including music, drama and art are a key component of school life. Ardvreck has its own purpose-built Music School and 95% of our pupils play at least one musical instrument. We have a large school orchestra and children are encouraged to take up a string or woodwind instrument from an early age. Many pupils have recently achieved outstanding success in music and drama exams. Each afternoon pupils take part in a full sporting programme and competitive matches against other schools are an integral part of school life.
Our safe and secure environment helps all our children to be happy, challenged, purposeful and busy. ...Read more

Via pre-prep but most come at 8. Boarding in the last year no longer compulsory but great majority do. Prospective pupils visit school, meet head and get a pupil tour, then spend a taster day in school (or overnight if boarding) wearing school uniform 'so they don't stick out'. Each child is issued with a 'school brother or sister'. They arrive
