Named Person

Most children and young people get all the help and support they need from their parent(s), wider family and community, but sometimes, perhaps unexpectedly, they may need a bit of extra help.

About Us

Ardfern operates out of two campuses, which are located in Johnstone and Alexandria, and offer children a varied educational programme based on the experiences.

Our Approach

We have a firm focus on teaching and learning and offer a curriculum which takes account for the need for flexibility to motivate and encourage pupils.


All young people at Ardfern School are offered a broad general education that will equip them with skills and qualifications to assist them in their transition into adulthood.
