Ardvreck School is an independent boarding school, located in Crieff in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It was established in 1883.[1]


When W E Frost founded Ardvreck as a Preparatory School in 1883, he did so with the intention of teaching all of his pupils 'patience, justice, obedience and unselfishness'.[2]

Most of the classrooms have been built since 1983.


Senior school destinations have included Fettes College, Gordonstoun, Lomond School, Loretto School, Eton College, Harrow School, Uppingham School, Oundle School, Sherborne School, Ampleforth College, Rugby School, Stowe School, Marlborough College, Millfield, Bryanston School, Merchiston Castle School, Sedbergh School and Strathallan School. However more pupils go to nearby Glenalmond College than any other senior school.


The junior boarders aged 8–11 live in Junior House. In their last two years, the boys live in MacLellan House whilst the girls live in Erskine.
