About Us

A school for children with big dreams.

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.
