Airthrie School

Airthrie School was established in 1940, when the house was used as an evacuation base for an established school in Margate. Under threat in this vulnerable position, the Principal and young pupils moved from the dangers of this coastal town, settling into the safety offered by midland Cheltenham. A caring and homely environment was established for these young boarding pupils and it quickly became attractive to local parents. After the war, the school continued to develop and its reputation grew until today when it is a thriving day school which has seen much educational progression. Nonetheless, what remains constant is the family atmosphere on which Airthrie was founded. Friendly and non-institutional, it offers a welcoming ambience well suited to young pupils taking their first steps in education.

Airthrie is accommodated in two linked Victorian houses which have undergone a considerable amount of modernisation and expansion. Developments are always carried out after careful consideration and sympathetic planning in order to provide children with the appropriate facilities required for today's education.
