Statement – 28th February 2014
We are delighted to announce that, following extensive discussions with our lawyers and full consideration of the options available for the future of Dunottar, the Dunottar School Foundation has now entered into a contract with United Learning. United Learning have agreed to take over the running of Dunottar School as a co-educational establishment for age range 11 to 18 and have undertaken to run the school at least until the end of the Summer Term 2024. They have also committed to invest in the development of the school site for the benefit of current and future pupils.
Dunottar Board of Governors
Welcome from our Headmistress
Dunottar School was established in 1926 by Mrs Elliot-Pyle, who chose for the school’s crest a pelican mother nurturing her young. Her vision was to create a school in which girls would also be nurtured by a team of highly-qualified, dedicated and caring teachers. Each individual girl would be valued and encouraged to attain her potential. Each girl would be equipped with the skills to face the wider world and the confidence to take risks.
Today, the ethos of the school remains the same. Your child will not be a nameless face, lost in a large class. As a member of our close-knit community, their abilities will be encouraged through what the ISI inspectors describe as an ‘outstanding’ academic curriculum. Our academic results speak for themselves (GCSE click here and A’ level click here). Your child’s academic achievements might even exceed the predictions made when they first join us: we are well known for our ‘added value’ scores (what is added value?).
We now look forward to being part of United Learning and welcoming boys from September 2014.
These are very exciting times at Dunottar School – come and see for yourself.
