Ardgowan School is definitely a special place. Our extensive grounds and great new playground overlook spectacular countryside and snow capped mountains. We offer all the benefits of a rural school, while only being 5 minutes drive from the centre of town.

Our modern well resourced buildings provide the best possible learning environment for our primary and intermediate students. We are also fortunate to have retained our historic, original school building, which is now being used as our Y6-8 classroom.

Our team of dedicated, inspirational teachers encourage the students to be the best that they can be. We maintain small class sizes in the junior school which means that each child benefits from more individual teacher time. We encourage our students to develop a love of learning, curiosity and to be confident risk takers.

We offer successful and well resourced numeracy and literacy programmes and are committed to providing our students with access to the latest technology. We have a large supply and the use of interactive mimio boards in our classrooms which are a real motivator. ICT is used to full effect to enhance the learning of all our children.

Our wonderful teachers, parents and Board are generous with their time and we have a real sense of community.

Ardgowan School continues to be a place where we work together - teachers, parents, Board, students and the wider community.
WHAT A RECIPE FOR SUCCESS!!!!!
