Dean Close Airthrie centres on the experience of childhood; the curiosity that nests there and the imagination that makes children so special. Our aim here is to allow your child’s individuality to flourish, through their experience of excellent learning opportunities combined with the essence of what childhood is all about; from exploration in and outside the classroom to playing make-believe on the pirate ship in the playground.
We embrace all pupils, find out what makes them light-up, we instil confidence by focusing on praise and provide opportunities for them to truly flourish as themselves. Childhood dreams take flight, ‘I wish’ becomes ‘I do’, and Airthrie pupils step forward into their chosen senior schools as confident individuals with character.
CURRENT YEAR 6 PUPIL
Childhood is an exciting time of discovery and learning and this should be encouraged in all they do. Let children dream. Let children imagine. This is something we adults, often forget to do ourselves, as we go about our everyday lives."
The most special thing for me about Airthrie pupils is their togetherness, their joy in sharing, their caring and their ability to work as a united team. This team spirit has been and is demonstrated in many aspects of school life but my special memories of this has been within the Forest Meetings as Thetford Forest Leader. "
One of the reasons I love Airthrie is how kind everybody is. No matter where you are, people are there to put a smile on your face and make you laugh. All our teachers care for us like family. "
